I'm pulling the leaf springs on my KR apart to refinish them(they are currently black).
I've never done this before, is it OK to re use the clamps or best to replace them?
Thanks in advance as always.

I just came across some original DMV rego/licensing paperwork for this car from 1970 to 1973.
Seems the long term owner of my KR also owned this one, looks like he bought it new, and some of the paperwork ended up with me.
Happy to pass it on to the current owner for no cost, subject to proof of ownership of course.
Please get in touch if it's yours.

That is the good horn button. It doesn't have the fire issue.

Excellent, thanks Dave !!

There are 2 different versions of the FIV wheel. Each uses a different horn button. The fire issue is with the horn button that is a disc and spring. The other one uses an enclosed horn button assembly, held together with a large spring clip, like the 67 Shelby horn button. That wheel is safe.
Send me a photo of the horn button removed from the wheel to  dmathews@prodigy.net  and I can tell. I may also have a spacer sleeve for the column but need to look.
Dave
Awesome on all counts, I will send a pic through and interested in the spacer of course, thanks Dave.

I found that the plastic cap for a can of peanuts fits the column neck perfectly.

If you hollow out the center of it and paint it black, it will fit the column and close the gap.

It would be better to find a black cover but I'm not sure that they exist BUT I haven't raided my wife's "left over covers" which considering the variety that falls out of the cabinet every time I open it, could be a possibility?

The peanut can cover is clear and you will need to paint it.  ;)
Thanks for the great tip, if I can't get hold of a sleeve fingers crossed our tins are the same size as yours....worst case I get to eat a tin of peanuts.

The peanut can wont work, Jack is in Australia. The lids are the bottom of the cans.
We drive upside down too(like in Men in Black, it's really cool) so it might work.

This wheel was on my KR when I bought it, I know its not correct but I like it a lot so I'm going to leave it on.
I've read that some of these wheels had an electrical short problem that could lead to a fire, can anyone tell me if that issue applies to my wheel, or if there is a way to tell?
Also, is this wheel meant for a KR or is it a 67 wheel? If it is for a 68 were they sold at Ford/Shelby dealerships or as an after market accessory?
Finally, there's a bit of an unsightly gap between the wheel boss and the column, is their meant to be a "sleeve" or something there to tidy it up?
Thanks in advance as always.
