Rim Blow Steering Wheel Repair

My '69 has the rim blow steering wheel. The inside rubber ring that activates the horn is dried up and some sections of it are gone. I would like to get the neat rim blow horn activation to work again. I ran across this: https://www.therimblowbuddy.com/our-store/1969-rimblow-horn-switch/

Is this what I need to make it work again?

Yup…Also, here’s a good video for you to watch on the subject: https://youtu.be/EiMJ-Ao78c8

Good luck!

Scott, thanks for the link! I’ll check it out later tonight or this weekend when I have time to sit down and watch it. i did watch the first minute or 2 and he talks about the '69 is different and he would cover in a different video. I did a quick search, but didn’t find it. Do you know if he ever ended up making that video? they might be very similar and I can figure it out if he never made the '69 video.

I know that the 1969 rim blow will not work in the 1970-74 rim blow steering wheels, so the installation may, in fact, be different. I have not been able to find a new WCCC 69 rim blow install, but Auto Resto Mod on Youtube did a video on the 69 Ford rim blow - watch this one as well… https://youtu.be/0UWTidbFzsg

Good luck buddy!

There are three makers of that one year switch, we use Daniel Carpenter, here is a link.


Thanks for the link, Don! I went ahead and ordered it and made the mistake of looking through the accessories section on your site and added another $100 to my bill, but all cool stuff!! I’m not sure if it even exists and thought you would have it if anyone, but I want to find a keychain that is just the running cat. Have you, or anyone else for that matter, ever seen one?

There are original dealer key chains in several forms that pop up on ebay for a reasonable a price. Glad the site is working as designed!


Yeah the site was designed well to get me to spend extra $$! :mrgreen:

The keychain isn’t really what I was looking for, but I thought it’s pretty cool considering that it is vintage; probably the one I like the most so far since I’ve been looking. Thanks for the link and also thanks for doing the how to videos. I watched your video on re-doing the '69 windows this past weekend; it is one of the projects I need to do towards the top of my list, although I think I will do as you suggested and use sand paper and not a grinder :stuck_out_tongue:
