Hello everyone
Just bought a 1958 100/6 and am finding things that need sorting follow link for an image https://www.flickr.com/photos/95118177@N00/26546435516/in/dateposted-public/
The car has a moto lita steering wheel with boss that I would like to connect a horn to https://www.flickr.com/photos/95118177@N00/19587350286/in/album-72157666880731540/
It has the horn push with connector on the wheel, however what do I need to connect it to the column so I can organise a relay to the horns themselves?
Also would my column be adjustable on a 58?
It has a gnarled black plastic ring that looks like it should unscrew however it is very stiff
Thanks

Lee

Lee,
Some cars didn't have an adjustable wheel/column. Mine is one of them. If there is a large black knurled fitting behind the wheel where it meets the column then it is adjustable. If the nut isn't there then it's non-adjustable.

My 100-6 MM was equiped with an adjustable steering column. I have a Moto-Lita wood wheel on it now.

Does your horn button look like the one in Doug’s picture above? (I tried following the link in your post and it didn’t work for me) if you have an aftermarket horn button, you could probably figure out the horn, but then you’d need to wire up another switch for turn signals, best bet would be to use a stock Healey trafficator switch (life Doug’s). Note, trafficator switches are different for adjustable and non-adjustable wheels.

Ciao Lee,
i had the same issue to fix.
My car always had a Motolita steering wheel without original horn fitted and non adj column. I found last year a non adj horn original including the wiring.
I installed it and deleted the old wiring and horn controls on the dashboard.
Pictures before/after.

This is my custom built wood steering wheel with a non-adjustable column. Used my old Healey steering wheel and fabricated a new one to match my custom dash. Both made from curly maple.
