Here is what I am talking about. The photos above are the original wiring harness with an added dorman replacement part.

The New Crown Harness was delivered today. It is a completely different size. You can see in these photos the template used for the the dorman part will need to be trimmed/ground to fit better. There is not a one size fits all solution.

Lock Plate. As you can see they both have surface rust. No rot as of yet.

Is there anything special about the metal? Could they be painted without an issue? or just clean up and ospho?

nothing special. Clean up or lightly paint - your choice.

I only need the tools that I can't find.

Here was today's tasks. Media blasted the lockplates. Paint them up next.

Since I have not been able to acquire a lower tilt shroud, I set upon fixing the missing piece from my original.

Shaped a bit of scrap metal, epoxied it to the curve and hit it with the bondo. Coming along pretty well.

Those are the horn switch contacts. Somebody else says that they are for the key buzzer but the key buzzer contact looks like this and is over by the lock cylinder.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

they came to me in a bag and do not know how to install them as of yet. Will get to that when all the painting is done. Thanks for the link!

I would have to disagree with that statement. The TS switch without the extra wires would need a horn contact. It's located here on the turn signal switch:

You can see a little metal cover. that is what keeps the spring for the contact button pushed against the canceling cam.

Here is the horn contact button:

And the ring on the contact cam:

If in doubt, Just trace the wires back to the plug. If they are the Key buzzer, they would be in this position.:

The Key buzzer switch makes contact like this:

The horn button only needs one wire. It grounds through the steering shaft.

Only other wire not mentioned is for the PRNDL light. That is just an orange wire going to the plug just above the Keybuzzer positions.

Here are the 2 remaining columns stripped. One wire wheeled and the other media blasted.

Has anyone ever taken one completely apart before paint? Since it has a plastic shim between the 2 pieces, it would need to be separated before powder coating.

I just do not see how to do it and or even get it back together if I did.

And the inner shafts cleaned of all the gunk, rust and old dried grease.

I think powder coating these is a step too far. Use epoxy paint.

I only need the tools that I can't find.
