View Full Version : blinker switch = steering wheel removal

12-09-2001, 02:56 PM
Hola Compadres!

My turn signal switch arm hangs limp! Is there an early van viagra for a stiff and reactive turn signal switch or must I remove the steering wheel and get into the guts?

Well then, I seem to have a single bolt that holds the steering wheel on... Is this true? Cause when I take it off, there is no way the wheel want to then come off as well. Are there hidden clips, etc, or is it just 36 years of being bolted on doggonit!?

Then, anyone know if that turn signal switch assembly is available? Or do I need to find a junker?

Thanks again!

Its either the cam or the whole assembly, I think you can still find the cams, In my '66
it was the plastic cam, but I found the whole signal assembly in a unpicked '65. Putting the horn back on will be a challenge too.

You need a wheel puller to get the wheel off.If you need the cancel cam i have a used one. If you need the horse shoe peice that holds the signle lever you can get that at any napa auto parts store.
If you need the whole thing go to your local chevy dealer and have them put it on locator there are several dealers that still have it in stock. #910821

Hey Vanparts;
for my 65, I need a heater Core, three speed fan motor and plenum. And a three speed wiper motor and switch. And a hanger and washer bottle with pump. I also need the bracket that holds the passenger door stop assembly. That part is most likley reversed for opposing application. And finally a drivers window regulator.
