I know this forum caters to the "leave it like it came from the factory" crowd and I left my '52 Buick stock for 33 years but it just can not keep up with traffic so I am installing a 425 nailhead in it. I decided to go with rack and pinion steering and that required me to modify my steering column. My '52 has power steering so I am not going to modify any of it. But my parts car has manual steering and the steering shaft is to long for my application so I need to shorten it. I can just saw off the end and machine the end for double "D" U-joint and I am good. But I need to move the horn contact up the steering shaft about 6 inches. The horn contact is brass and insulated from the steering shaft by a rubber insulator. Has anyone repaired one or is there a repair part that I can buy? I know I could buy a new fancy tilt column but it would look out of place. Thank you for any ideas.
