    I just put in a new turn signal switch in a column that has been apart before. the haynes manual says that there is a thrust washer between the canceling cam and the spring
    but I don't have one and everytime I press the lock plate down It is causing the horn to go off (the first time there has been a fuse in it since I have owned it)
    so what can I use? what does the thrust washer look like?
    does it look like the one in a axle? If it matters it is a non-tilt auto column in a 79
    TIA

    Nevermind I found it.... I think it's just a washer..... nothing all that special. I'm betting Napa would have it. I couldn't find any pics of the washer from a column but the ones I found from compressors, axles and other stuff all looked like plain old washers a few with little varations for special applications. None of them cost much....
