Clock spring is where the steering wheel meets the steering shaft. There is a "clock" spring there which supplies power and grounds through the switches on the steering column. That area, the harnesses from the switches join and go down the column. That is where the wires meet each other. They don't meet in other areas.

This is Dan... I took over the question back on the 12th and asked you for more information.
There should be a model number with letters and numbers. What is your VIN so we can try that maybe. Also, Your question was about what is the clock spring area. That has been answered but there is no information on what your real problem is. What problem are you trying to resolve that brought you to that area to look for it? We should back up a bit.
Thanks for the update. This is one of the Cabover chassis. I do not have the schematics on this model but some of the UD diagrams are available on the Mack Media site. Let me opt out in case another expert can help better on this model with diagrams.
