Since of have had the 66, I have encountered many problems with the turn signal switch burning up. I have replaced it six times in just a few years - at $30 a pop, I don't want this to happen anymore. Is there some sort of plastic disk that prevents this, or a stopper that holds the steering wheel away from the switch? Last time, a wire shorted out against the metal backing of the steering wheel through which the horn circuit completes. Please tell me what I am doing wrong. Thanks.

Been there, done that. Place a piece of black electrical tape (it insulates) on the back of the switch, so that the rivet heads don't contact the steering wheel metal (which is ground). I've run mine 3 years that way without a problem.

Thanks alot. I'll try that as soon as I can get a new switch. Hopefully the cops won't pull me over before then.
