Default new steering wheels sparks

I installed my new pony steering wheel. Just a replacement and now when u move it, sparks come shooting out and the horn does not work. Anyone seen this or been through this before. Thanks for any information. I am looking for a diagram of the steering wheel guts.

I along with many others have this problem with our Grant Wheels. I assume from your post you are not using a Grant Wheel though.
Invest the $35 and pick up a Shop Manual. It will show the steering diagram and be invaluable on many future problems also.

+1 on the shop manual.

I picked mine up off e-bay for about $20.

Also purchased the wire diagram book that has come in very handy at times.

My latest purchase that came in yesterday is a book about "How to rebuild your small block Ford". That book will be useful just for general understanding even if you aren't currently doing a rebuild.

hiya. i don't know anything about 66 horn pickup as I have a 64 myself and the steering wheel and pickup is completely different.
Sparking at inner steering wheel is 99% your horn.

I'm too lazy to check on the wiring diagram at the moment. so:
- did the horn ever work?
- do you have 2 cables coming out of the steering or only one?
