Repairing Stator Tube Ground

 

By Wallace Mynatt, Metropolitan Mailing List

 

It isn't really that big of a job to remove the horn/signal assembly with the stator tube and fix the grounded wire.

First, disconnect the four wires at their connection points under the hood at the base of the steering box then remove the nut and olive {brass seal} which are on the steering box. Sometimes you must gently tap the brass olive to get it to release, but it must come off before the stator tube and wires can be pulled out of the steering box assy.

There are three hold down screws in the steering wheel which must be backed out then the horn/signal assy can be pulled out all together. The stator tube can be separated from the horn/signal assy. Pulling straight out carefully.
When repairs are made the wires should be taped together tightly with one pull through wire which is longer than the stator tube by at least a couple of feet. This will really help during reassembly. Put the stator back on to the horn/signal assy. Then into the steering wheel and into it's original location.

Replace the three hold down screws after the assy is flush with the tabes inside the steering wheel, tighten the three set screws to hold the horn assy. in place. Then the brass olive and nut; rehook wires and refill your steering box with gear box oil.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Wallace
