  • Electrical: horn wire

    Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the horn wire fits into the tube,but how does it get out of the tube at the bottom where it attaches to the steering box? This is a CK with power steering. Jim

    From my limited experience with the Saginaw power steering set up, it isn't any fun. There's a spring loaded brush and a "contact plate" for it. The wire comes out the side above the actual gearbox and I think you need to work with the spring loaded setup to replace the wire. I don't know if there is a picture in the Chassis Parts Catalog, but that's where I would start.

      What year? My '61 Hawk comes out the bottom of the box in line with the column, with or without P/S. -Jim

        On Saginaw power steering setups, the wire goes out with the turn signal switch wires, on the column. At least I think it does, it did on my Packard Hawk.

          Sorry I wasn't clear; I was referring to the "integral" Saginaw units. The later cars that used the linkage type power steering with the control valve and the "ram", probably use the conventional column where the horn wire exits at the bottom of the column like the non power steering cars.
