RE: [Chrysler300] 300K Tilt Schematics?



They all break. First thing I ever fixed on a 300, broke in my hand when I opened hood to look at the engine week one. . aggravating. 

Adjust so T NEVER comes all the way out of slide holder it is in..the bending there,  if it comes out , or almost comes out , is what breaks it , at other end clamp probably was moved leaves a scratch or dent on wire starts fatigue it breaks there . could get fancy with "Control Cables" type pull cable , stranded wire , larger OD, Teflon lined , but old way is OK if careful? 

No need to make a project out of it, right? Plus to do that project would need the old T 's??  Just order one from him, straight at both ends, the right length you want,  or a half inch longer housing than stock..it is on short side I agree!

Don is right, for 10$ a steal....
Make spares from your tees?

My wire broke at the latch end and I had to trim back the sheath enough to add a short piece w/another clamp Is anyone close enough to this fellow to pay him a visit?
Maybe he would be interested in supplying the cable for the club as part of a repro project.
I have an extra tee handle that was original to my F back when I bought it and possibly another from a Newport that was parted but the cable would be too short on that one and need replaced as well.

Was lucky enough to have an NOS cable when the F went together back in the 80's. That's the one that broke on me

Great idea...yes! 

You can fix the end at T , I have fixed two on F, very common problem , especially if T pulls out too far which accidentally bends wire at sleeve . Some are swaged or obvious crimp to T some seem molded on to center wire , but whatever,  get old broken piece  out, might have to cut off the T a small amount (minimize that ) ; then clean by drilling a small hole the size of the wire about 1/4 - 3/8 into the T end . The drilling shines up the inside so solder will "take" ..important. Solder soon after drilling, or it oxidizes.  . 

Then shine wire really clean with a razor knife scraping it all over for about 3/8" , put plumbing flux on wire , stick in and solder with plumbing solder and minimal gentle propane flame . Do not overheat, easy does it. I used old style lead 50/50 , "takes" better, but new no lead stuff should work too (and is stronger ), use correct flux, be sure other end, the screw in a  brass thing is really tite, it can slip off. = mayhem 

This fellow could make the raw cable , straight at both ends. Great find . 

I have had the  loops snap off ----- once on a Corvair I had, (turbo monza convert, it out leaks a Harley) --it had about 6 of these cables , I was able to fix that broken loop stuff by soldering an uninsulated electrical terminal eye made for # 16 wire to Bowdon wire end, same idea. Solder,  if it takes (clean!) is probably stronger than the wire , washers on each side of terminal at reassembly . Works on 300 heater temp cable at adjusting slider too.

Do you suppose this fellow could fix an F hood release with a new cable??

I found this source for heater cables. http://www.rayeveritt.com/HeaterCables/HeaterCables.html

Custom made to any length. Prices seem reasonable too.

The tilt wheel option was first offered by Chrysler in 1964.  It was outsourced from Saginaw, a GM company.  This link takes one to a detailed service bulletin for the mechanicals of the system as installed in a Chevrolet:  http://www.jholst.net/tilt-wheel/1964-tilt-wheel.pdf           The 1964 Chrysler Supplemental Service Manual covers the tilt wheel beginning on page 38:  http://www.jholst.net/64-supplement/steering.pdf  Electrically, the system requires a short transition wiring loom piece to change from the GM wiring to the Chrysler loom.  A major difference is that the horn wire is included in the Chrysler connector but is separate in the GM wire bundle.

I have found that it is difficult to position the turn signal switch mounted near the floor board and that the Bowden cable from the hub to the switch was broken with no replacement available.  Length is critical.  I think my replacement came from a GTO, but can’t remember for sure.

David & All

I too have the Tilt wheel, does yours telescope? Mine does. I need a center cap for the steering wheel, do you have an extra? Also, do you have an extra steering wheel? Mine is marginal, and finding parts as you know is difficult, so when some body has one I must ask, you never know who has parts, also, if someone has the exploded view, give it to David first, and if available I also can use one. 

PS: supposedly, the tilt/telescope column was sourced from General Motors (perhaps a Saginaw?), may help in the exploration for parts.

Hi All,
I'm in the midst of replacing the turn signal in my Ram K (tilt wheel option). Might someone have an exploding view schematics on the wheel and steering column? 

We can't find anything online.
