65 Turn Signal Cancel Cam
« on: June 28, 2019, 11:08:21 PM »
Have a 65 A-code that had a Grant steering wheel installed that utilizes its own version of the Ford signal cam cancel part that slipped on spline of old steering wheel. Am putting a 65GT350 replica 6 bolt adapter and steering wheel back on the car and was able to locate a really nice turn signal cancel cam piece from Brad that fits the backside of my adapter. Assembly mounts and turn signal works like it should. Even the turn signal cancel cam does its job and cancels the left/right turn when the wheel is turned the appropriate way. However, if the turn signal is moved to a left turn position and the wheel is turned to the left, I see the turn lever jump as though the plastic turn signal mechanism is engaging the cancel cam. I can even hear it as well as see lever move. Same happens with a right turn.
I have another car and when left turn signal is initiated and wheel is turned left, all is quite and the signal lever does not move until wheel is turned back to right.
Even moved the quiet wheel and adapter to the noisy car and its still noisy so I don't think its the adapter or cancel cam. Any suggestions? I don't remember ever seeing or hearing the turn signal lever act this way.
