Installing a GS steering wheel

Discussion in 'The Bench' started by great white north skylark, May 5, 2020.

  1. Hi all, any advice or tips on installing a GS rally steering wheel on my 72 Skylark? The picture shows the horn button only, the wheel is a three spoke type. Just not sure how it goes together. Thank you for any help or advice.

    You should have a spring, an eyelet, and an insulator that drops down into the hole to the horn contact ring. The insulator twists in to lock it in. Then install the steering wheel/hub assembly. Make sure the alignment marks on the shaft and the hub line up. Next is the nut - torque to 25-35 lb-ft. Install the horn contact with three screws - drop the "leg" into the hole to contact the eyelet. Clip the cap on and GO.
    I tried to post the picture of the assembly from the manual, however, it didn't work. I could email it to you as a PDF

    Something going on with that cap? It looks odd to me.
