  • Other: 1962 steering column horn setup

    Does anyone have a picture of the horn wiring setup at the steering column that shows the exact configuration of the wiring and the plates with the steering wheel? Thanks, chet445

    The '61 to '66 Models all use a brass Switch plate under the wheel, with a Horn Switch in the Housing below the wheel with a carbon contact to rub on the plate. The Plate has a wire attached going down to the Turn signal wiring Exit Hole in the Column near the Dash where it connects with a Female connector to the wire going to the Horn Relay under the Hood.

      When my Sky Hawk was being restored I was told that the horn mechanism was too screwed up to be repaired so he installed a button on the dash. Also the turn signals have to be held down when used. What's the deal here?

        I can't imagine a horn mechanism being too screwed up to be fixed. Parts must be available or repairable.
        My 50 Land Cruiser only blows if I push the horn ring on the left side, so I need to remove it and clean the contact plate.

            I finally figured that I have the internals correct for my '62 Hawk horn but a steering wheel from another Studebaker that is not compatible but I will be able to circumvent the problems. Yankee ingenuity will prevail.

              All the answers are pictured in the chassis parts catalog.

              Nothing needs to be modified. All you have to do is identify the correct parts and order them.

                Wish I had a chassis catalog but own only shop manual. I'm sure some vendor out there has the part I need but I'll continue with the modification which consists of a small thin brass plate with wire attached and placed on bottom side of steering wheel. The spring loaded prong will ride on the plate and the wire will go up through the hole and be in inserted in the receiver fixture on the top portion of steering wheel...slight modification but will work.
