MG MGB Technical - Horn Push assembly and parts

I finally found a correct steering wheel for my 67 B Gt. Unfortunately it does not have the horn push assembly. I know Moss has this for sale.

Can someone send me either pictures or data on how the horn push works fromthe center part of the steering wheel? I know there is a spring loaded contact on the top of the steering column and there is a brass contact on the shaft. What makes contact with the spring loaded contact?

I changed my steering wheel last year to a Mountny and if I remember correctly the spring loaded brush contacts with the positive brass strip, the ground is just the horn push connected to the metal steering column, sort of the same way the courtesy lights work, using the car body as a ground and a powered line to the switch. There is a metal retaining ring in the rubber horn push itself which is grounded to the column. I hope this makes sense.
