Spring washer thingy
Bone nylon insulator
Horn ring
Pink nylon spacer and three screws
Center emblem

Perhaps not the technical terms. Dodads?

 Spring washer is contacting steering wheel when everything is assemble. Something is out of sorts with this washer.

On my cars, not a 64, that washer in not flat, try turning it over from whatever way you have it now. There was also a spring loaded button which goes in a hole under the washer.

Perhaps the contact is not returning properly?

 

ST3021KIT_t.jpg The item on the most left or top right are the only moving parts. Perhaps they are warn and the spacing is decreased. or the spring washer the should pop like a bottle cap or oil can? I would see about some replacement parts... Most likely in my opinion the spring washer is warn lost shape.

I'm curious as well...have a little work to do at some point, 

From what I gather, all the contact parts are the same Big car 58-66?

I ordered a new horn kit, i hope that will help.

but after a fresh pot of coffee, i decided to use some logic. There is a crack in my wheel that is just large enough to allow lateral movement and the center of the ring grounds out on the steering wheel bolt. I wrapped electrical tape on the nut and tried it again. Success. I was hoping to avoid installing my new wheel until the interior gets finished.

 Okay thanks I wasn't sure. It seemed to me that yours had looked like that. You never found a decent one?
