60 catalina turn signal box

Question

I took apart my 1960 turn signal box to clean the contacts.  4 small ball bearings fell out and I cannot figure out where they go? Any help?

Well it's been a long long time since I had the steering column of my GTO apart and since it's been gone for more than 40 years my brain may be foggy. That said I believe the balls are from a collar bearing just below the turn signal switch assy. It is retained by a snap ring if I recall correctly. So if any of this is accurate, and that may be a big if, it sounds like something has come apart. I think you’ll have to dig a little deeper into the column.
