Horn and Steering Wheel question!
#1
Does anyone have an exploded view of the steering column?? I need to see what this 71 I'm working on is missing for the horn. The owner did find his steering wheel but it has a big chunk missing out of it. And he has NO other parts just the wheel. He has the standard interior with the horn in the center of the wheel on a button. What all should be under the steering wheel??  The aftermarket horn has a disc that runs on the 2 contacts of the turn signal switch to give the horn button power. I don't know how a stock one is supposed to be set up.  That's one of the only things on my car that I have never had apart in 15 years! I do have the factory books at home but I was just wanting to figure this out today.  Let me know if anyone has any pics of removing the wheel, what's supposed to be under there. Is there a spacer from the factory?? Need to find out what all we need if we have the column stripped down to just the turn signal switch.   Sorry for all the questions, normally I would look in my books or my car, but I cant get to either of those till tomorrow.  He sent me these pics of the wheel he has. Apparently the garage that FIXED his horn before didn't throw away his wheel, just everything else pertaining to the original wheel. Their fix for the horn was to replace the entire wheel with an aftermarket. He hates the aftermarket one and wants to get something stock back in it.
Thanks guys.

Well after doing some more digging I found that his steering wheel is missing this plate. Can you buy that separately or is that something that is supposed to be permanent on the wheel??

Not sold separately or reproduced. It is part of the steering wheel.

Let me check your shorts!

What is a fair price for a decent 2-spoke original wheel. with no Horn pad?

I have a spare one and want to be fair to me and the buyer.

Not sure what a fair price is yet?? Have not been able to find any in good shape. I looked on ebay and they have new ones for $300 and some used beat up ones for $30. If you can, could you post some pics of yours and maybe I can make you an offer once I see it??  I have been checking a few articles online about repairing cracked wheels. Don't look too hard to do. So a crack or two is not a deal breaker at this point. Just need to price accordingly because the crack repairs look time consuming and im sure that epoxy is not fun to sand!
Thanks for all the replies fellas!

Keep in mind the one you picture is the round horn button " Pinto " wheel
Most of what you see on ebay will be the deluxe two spoke
If he really wants a original wheel get a hold of hemikiller on here, he may have one

Thanks Don I sent you a PM. 
At this point I think he would be ok with a deluxe wheel instead of the standard. He just hates the aftermarket one.

Here is the one I have.  Id does have several cracks, but no missing sections.  

One suggestion.  My car came with the comfort wrap option.(Steering wheel cover)  I have no idea if mine is cracked underneath that wrap and I really don't care as no one can see it.  That can save you the burden of epoxy repair and still have a nice original look.

The same as a 3-spoke (rimblow) steering wheel.
