Need upper steering column schematic for 79 CJ7.

I am looking for an upper steering column schematic for my 79 CJ7. The other day on a leisurely drive my turn signal lever landed in my lap. I removed the wheel and found that I need to replace the plastic part that holds the lever on. Problem is I do not know what it is called to order it. Any help?

Do you need an alectrical schematic or a pictoral to find out what the part is called? Try: http://www.4wd.com/index.htm

I think the lever screws into the switch itself??? Pull the wheel and look. I'm sure the part(s) is/are available. Good Luck.

1. I believe it's called a "Turn Signal Cam"
2. It's a plastic piece that houses:[*]Turn Signal Switch[*]Turn Signal Return Springs
3. It's a GM part,
4. Reproduced by MotorMite... the " <font color="red"> HELP </font color> people,
5. Who have parts in almost every auto-parts store.
6. I think NAPA also has 'em.
7. Thie're about $30
8. Is this what you're lookin' for?



9. Four Wheel Drive Hardware also has 'em,
10. Same price...

Found it at Nappa. Now I can't get the spring compressed enough to press on the spring clip. Any suggestions?

1. It's back to NAPA with ya,
2. Tell 'em what you're doing,
3. Ask for a LOCK PLATE compression tool.
4. Me, I'm cheap...
5. I do it with two small screwdrivers,
6. And a test of my patience.

The lock plate compression tool is cheap too. I was surprised at how cheap, I think it was 6-8 bucks at Autozone. If I tried it with a couple screwdrivers, I'd spend more than the cost of the tool in Band-Aids (and cough syrup for the sore throat from cursing it).
