1948 Ford F1 Horn Question

Ok...I am baffled. I have seen the diagram below, and I have seen the picture below. Does the nut go on inside the horn "cup" or does the horn "cup" sit on top of the nut? If it goes on before the cup then what holds the cup? The diagram doesn't show it that way.

Don't read this when the correct answer is two posts down.

what holds the support cup and the assembly in the steering wheel opening? The reason I ask is that this I have the nut as tight as I can to the wheel. If the support cup goes over the net, my horn button is to high above the center of the wheel and technically it isn't being held be anything? That is why I loaded the pic where the poster had used the nut to hold the cup into the center of the wheel. That makes sense to me, because that would hold that support cup in. still confused

The exploded diagram is incorrect. The cup is retained by the steering wheel nut.

Mark is correct. The nut holds the cup. I just looked at mine and that's the way it's done.

Thanks gents. For the life of me I could not figure out how it could work if following both diagrams! Once again you solved a stupid riddle!

Good timing ó glad to have found this thread, as I was going by the exploded diagram, too.

Also, I assume the PO just added these two rubber washers on his own accord for some reason? I donít recall where they were exactly since itís been two years since I pulled it all apart.

I would be concerned using a rubber washer on the steering wheel nut connection. It might loosen over time or degrade leaving a loose connection.

thanks...
didn't realize my horn button (plastic top cap) had broken "latches" for the clip/spring. GRRRR.
one more thing to buy (shipping will probably be as much as button).
