    I guess I was asking if a 1957 could be 6V. I thought they changed in 57 to 12V. (Matters not, it will stay 12V.)

    Horn button wire location

    Where does the horn wire exit the steering column? There looks to be a hole at the end of the steering box, but no other clues. To rerun it, you must open the steering box and fish a new one through?

    Got it. So I DO have to remove the Warn hub to get the drum off to replace the wheel cylinder and the shoes, no?

    I don't understand. I pulled the wheel and the hub is on the outside. I can't see how anything would be holding the drum on since it has the wheel studs.
