Re: OEM Steering Wheels

Ref Moto Lita steering wheels.
I used to be a distributor for these wheels years ago, and Simon Green was a great guy. In those days they were based in Surbiton.
I seem to remember that they were the only steering wheels that were covered in a single piece of leather. The "spats" that cover the end of the spokes are not seperate as on other makes.
These wheels are superb quality. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: OEM Steering Wheels

For those who want a quick release for their steering wheel, here is the place to go. Others may carry the Snap-Off, but this is where I found it and bought it:

Re: OEM Steering Wheels

Lynn,

The hex shape quick releases on page 107 of the Pegasus catalog 21 aren't good enough? They are $49. This application require the involute spline or equivalent?

thanks,

Re: OEM Steering Wheels

No, none of the racing type suited me as I wanted to keep the turn signal and horn. I also didn't want an inch and a half of the insides of the column's hub showing. These releases are about 1 1/4-1 1/2" and the hub of the column is 3 - 3 1/2" This adapter adds much less to the overall length when used with a jeep boss (same as chevy but 1/3 to 1/2 as long) I am VERY happy with this purchase!! (did have to have a 3/8" adapter made since they are set for mouteny (sp).

Re: OEM Steering Wheels

Paul,
Is there any chance of you contacting your mate "Do Not Delete" and getting a copy of those drawings of the boss and bezel for me ?
I have a nice piece of Titanium waiting to make an original style boss for my car.

Re: OEM Steering Wheels

Paul,
I got my original pattern Moto-Lita wheel today. Gorgeous !
14" diameter and Ford blue/grey with the separate spats.
Moto-Lita will now produce 14" wheels in both b/g and black with a turnover of five weeks.
They also manufacture rear bosses for various column fittings.
The price for the wheel is now 125 + 17.5% VAT
