Nice idea, Chuck. The Bus wheels were big and flat (17 inches), so it makes sense that the stalks would clear. And now we know that they’ll swap into our columns. Or your column, at least. What year is your column, and what years will the bus stalk fit?
When I got my car, the signals didn’t work, and when I moved the wheel forward, wasn’t room for a replacement anyway. Not knowing about the bus option, I drill a hole in the dash near the left side of the wheel that I could reach with my little finger with my hand on the wheel. I installed and wired a “on-off-on” toggle switch. Now I just flick up for right , and down for left , and the flashing dash light reminds me to recenter the toggle if I forget , as us old guys are prone to do…laugh. Works really well.
I used to have one of those switches on the dash of my 62 midget. I think it was factory though as it was right in the middle of the dash. Yeah, you have to remember to cancel it, but it was simple and it WORKED! 🙂
I have the same problem. I use the turn signal and forget to reset it. The lights on the dash work but I don’t always notice them. So I got a piezzo buzzer from Radio shack and conneted it across the turn signal relay. It continues to beep till I bring the turn signal back to center. Works for me.
