New Turn Signal harness

Post #1 by 19Spaceage60 » Wed May 03, 2017 3:29 pm

Hi All,
1960 Comet.. the turn signals are shot (the switch in steering wheel is mush. I've got a new harness arriving any day. Last night I carefully removed the old harness noting and marking where all the wires go. So, the part that the turn signal switch (and horn switch) are attached to was removed, leaving the piece behind it (shift lever) sliding up the steering shaft as it's spring loaded. Here is my question.. is there a trick lining up the two square headed bolts on reassembling? Does my question make sense?

:hmmm: going from memory I think you will need to leave the bolts so the nut is just barely started. Then work the part back down until you can get the square bolt head back into the slot. If that doesn't work you can try putting the bolt heads into the slot first then slip the collar down over the bolts. It does take some finesse to do it. Good luck :nod:

Thank you!! I didn't think of that.. I was considering duct taping the bolts in place and sliding the collar in place..
