Hi folks. I recently transplanted a '67 Corvair steering column into my '66 Corvair. As a result, I have been coming up to speed about all of the differences in the columns that were introduced in '67.

One thing that has been a real head-scratcher is getting my Grant aftermarket steering wheel to install properly. I have talked to one of the Grant engineers and there is a discrepancy bewtween what I am observing and what he believes to be true with regard to the design of their hub vs. the stock GM hub. Therefore, I need to collect some data to figure out how steering wheels were mounted across the GM product line for '67 and later.

If your car has a stock steering wheel, it would be extremely helpful if you could answer the following questions. For the questions involving time, imagine the center of the wheel is a clock face.
    Year and model
    Standard steering column or tilt/tele?
    Location of hazard flasher switch. Is it 3:00 or somewhere else (where?)?
    Pop the horn button cap and then look at where the horn contact pokes through the hub. Is it roughly 10:30 or somewhere else (where?)?

If you can get a picture of wheel with the horn button removed, that would be really helpful too.

If you want more details about what the problem is that I am seeing, please let me know. I am happy to share.
