Will this product fit a 1964 Ford Falcon
Will replacing turn signal switch allow for blinkers to automatically turn-off when steering wheel returns to straight position? Thanks
I already see where this item will not work on a 64.5 with a generator. My 64.5 has an alternator. Will this item work with it?
Will this work on a 67 mustang
Will this fit a early 64.5 mustang with generator?
will this fit a 1965-66 Galaxie?
I recently installed the turn signal switch from Scott Drake. The install wasn't too bad. My issue is; the horn doesn't honk with the horn button but it does when I turn right. Any ideas?
What is the color sequence for the 7 wires--or where can obtain this information? This is for an original 65 mustang. Len

We'll be installing this Scott Drake turn signal switch which is designed for your '65 or '66 Mustang. The switch has mechanical and electrical parts to it, and when you turn this is actually what works when you hit the turn signal stock then it centers back again when you turn the wheel straight. These two contacts here are actually what works your horn and again your brake lights are also run through this, so it does control quite a few systems in your Mustang.
For this installation you'll need a 3/8 ratchet, 1/2 inch socket, steering wheel puller, 1/2 inch impact gun or 1/2 inch ratchet, short extension, 24mm socket, Phillips head screwdriver, wire cutters, pick, flashlight, razor blade, and tape.
Since the turn signal switch is an electrical component, the first step is to disconnect the battery. The turn signal switch is located on the steering column behind the steering wheel, so the first step is to remove our horn ring and then remove the wheel so we can access it. Start by pushing in, turn counterclockwise to remove your horn ring. Before you remove the retaining nut to remove your wheel, you'll want to make sure it's perfectly straight. It's not a bad idea to put a piece of tape across the top here to make sure it lines back up when you reinstall it.
Now we're going to remove the retaining nut. At this point, you have two options for removing the wheel. Sometimes you can actually get it off by hand. If not, you'll have to put a steering wheel puller on the stud here and use these two bolts to pull it out. I'm going to try to remove it by hand. Thread the nut on just a couple turns so the wheel doesn't fly off at you.
Here you can see the turn signal switch assembly. These are our horn contacts and this is the turn signals over here. You can see that we can move the stock up and down and how it goes left to right and sends power to the proper turn signal. First step to removing it is now to remove these three screws, and get this spring out of the way to make it easier. Then we'll remove the screws.
Once the screws are out we can remove this little plate. Now that that's loose we'll remove our turn signal lever and then slide that out. Now we're going to remove the harness from below the dashboard. The harness is going to go down your steering column and you'll see it come out the bottom at the side here. There'll be two plugs. They're usually on the other side of the brake handle. You'll want to follow the wire over. Then, we're going to pull it down a little bit, and there's our two harnesses we need to unplug.
Once you have them unplugged, you'll want to fish them back over to the column. Here you can see the original wiring and the wiring for our Scott Drake turn signal switch. The colors are the same, which makes it a lot easier to install. You might be wondering why the Scott Drake does not come with a plug. This plug will actually not fit through the column when assembled, so we've got to remove the wires down here and then remove the wires through the column and fish our Scott Drake down into place.
When you cut these plugs off, you'll want to leave enough wire so you can see what color it is. Since Drake uses the same wiring, we can replace them one wire at a time, and know we have the right connections. Now we can pull the sleeve off the wiring. Now we'll fish the wiring up through our column and remove our old switch.
Now we're ready to fish the wires down through our steering column. It's pretty narrow where the wires are going through. You can try taping them as a group but more than likely you won't get them without damaging the ends. The best thing I've found is put them down one wire at a time.
Now we can install the turn signal switch and the retaining plate. Line up the holes. Make sure it sits flush and reinstall the plate and the hardware. Our old turn signal lever was looking pretty beat so we're going to install a new one while we're here. It simply threads in. There's a flat spot here if you want to put a wrench on it, but usually you can get it plenty tight by hand. Everything moves like it's supposed to. We're going to move on to the plug.
You'll want to install this cover. Then we're going to show you how to install the plug. Once you have the wires fished down through your column, you're ready to remove the wires to the original plugs and put the Scott Drake wires in. To do that, there are little barbs that have to be released in the wire to allow it to pop out.
Here's a closer look at the wire on the Scott Drake so you can see the little barbs that have to be pushed in to pull it out of the harness. They do make a specific tool for doing this that most of you won't have in your toolbox. A small pick will actually suffice. Push the barb in. What you'll want to do is kind of pull on the wire while you're pushing on the barb and it will pop right through. You don't have to worry about damaging the barbs in the original wires since you're not going to be reusing them.
Now you want to grab the matching wire from the Scott Drake harness to put in the exact same slot. Slide it up and pop it into place. You'll want to repeat that for the other seven wires. Once your connections are done you're going to fish the harness over the fresh air vent and over your e-brake and we're going to plug it back in.
Once you plug in the harnesses before you put the steering wheel back in, it's a good idea to test everything just to make sure it works. We're going to start by checking our horn. Make sure you reattach your battery first. Using a test light or a test lead we'll touch the two of these together. Our horn's working fine. Now we'll turn to accessory and we'll check our turn signals. We'll start by checking our left turn signal. All looks good. Now we'll try our right, which is also working well. Double check the brake lights; everything's good. And we're ready to reinstall our steering wheel.
We'll start by reinstalling our steering shaft spring. Now we'll line the wheel up with our tape and reinstall it. Push that down and install the nut. Install the spring on the horn ring. Line that up and our installation is finished.
Like we mentioned before, your turn signal switch can cause a lot of problems with your Mustang. The installation can be a little tedious due to the wiring, but overall it's not too bad. Expect it to take around two hours. You'll be back on the road in no time. For more videos on our Weekend Wrench please subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
