Hello all,

Haven't posted for a while only coz I haven't had too till now.

I've noticed lately when driving the left hand turn signal won't cancel but the right one does and after trying to look through what information I have on the computer in the way of manuals I can't find a good schematic/diagram to try and find what might be broken or what might just not be doing its job.

I haven't pulled anything apart as yet to see whats going on inside, don't really want to until I have too as I can put up with it as is for now.

There seems to be only two things that could cause it that I can find?

Or

Has anyone any ideas as to what might be happening?

Cheers,
Chris

I've had this happen in my '66 Impala and my '65 truck. In both cases, there is a plastic piece that is part of the turn signal switch where one of the cancelling arms broke off. It's pretty simple to repair, and the part is only $6 at Classic Industries. Below is a link to the '66 part, but I think they're the same for a lot of chevys in that era.

Hello jktucker92,

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one to have had this problem, not that's its a big problem just an annoying one really.
I had a better look through the information I have on hand and the unit you've suggested looks a little different to the exploded diagram I have its something similar to this at Bob's Impalas,
http://www.impalas.com/1967-1968-turn-signal -cam-c...
Only difference between mine and this one is I have a Tilt Steer in the 67.

I'll just keep looking.

Cheers,
Chris.

With you having the tilt the second link you posted should be the correct replacement. https://www.classicindustries.com/product/all-year...

aghaga, yes I was kind of hoping it might be that one as it looks the easiest of the two to replace.
Having never had the coloumn apart I wanted to get as much information as I can to make the job go as smoothly as possible.
I will start and see how I go.

Cheers,
Chris.

Hello all,

Just an update on the small problem I've had with the turn signal not returning to its position like it should.

I found some time to have a look and after removing everything carefully to get to the turn signal switch I quickly came across the problem and you know that saying "It's always the $2 part that is the problem" well in this case it was.

You see there is two small springs mounted on the switch, one for either turn (left or right) and the one for the left turn had some how come adrift from it position and fallen to the bottom of the steering housing, so once I had refitted it and put it all back together I went for a quick test run to see if it worked again and wallah, it worked.

Also found a dead spider and a lot of dust so I'd say it hasn't been apart for quite awhile.

Cheers,
Chris.
