When fixing the turn signal switch in my 64, I found out that the spacer is missing in steering column. This is non-tilt version. with amazing luck I managed to acquire missing spacer within few days.
Which position the spacer should be installed? Based on diagram, the pin is facing down. I wonder if anyone has photo how the spacer is positioned.
This spacer is not only making the cancel of turning signal, but it keeps that upper bearing tight. Without the spacer the bearing is sloppy and steering wheel feels a bit loose.
The pin in spacer need to point upward and goes to the hole in bottom of the steering wheel.
Somebody has been trying to repair the turn signal switch and did not install the spacer anymore for whatever reason.
