Steering specs or wooden steering wheel supplier

HI,

I'm trying to get a 15-16 inch wood steering wheel for my HR and all i seem to be able to find is a Grant from the US, the problem is that we are not sure of the fit kit as they sure as heck don't have a holden listing. They have sugested a fit kit (boss adapter) from a chevy nova.

My question is has anyone done this before? or does any one know the actual specs of the steering shaft? spline, lenght etc..

Or can you point me to an Au supplier of classic wood steering wheels......

thanks

You talking about this wheel?
[http://cgi.ebay.com....|Link to wheel]

I couldnt believe what it sold for, have seen 2 others with the EH centre before.. one sold for i thonk over $400 ages ago (and claimed it to be a S4 only steering wheel which i think people laughed about it on here) and the last one i saw sold for about $175.. also it is actually a maxrob steering wheel which i think was just a period accessory and not a nasco wheel.. I have seen a saas steering wheel with the EH centre also so maybe you can buy the mounting kit still for the centre piece.. i have a maxrob steering wheel which cost me just over $100 but wouldnt mind to put the EH centre in it if i could find the correct adapter.. if anyone knows if they are available let me know.. or maybe i should get one made up.. cheers

How about Saas wheels? There's one in my WB (check out my shed for pics).

Check out a company called "Auto Concepts" for more info on Saas.

..Aren't wooden steering wheels illegal? Can get metal steering wheels with wooden grips either side from Saas, and I think Momo do one also.

The LCGTRestoration is finished... it's on the road so time for a new handle. Look out for 71LCGTR

wooden steering wheels are very bad news in the event of an accident. Wood is very hard to pick up on xrays so if you collide with it and it breaks, and you get wood splinters inside you, its likely goodnight Irene. Very painfully as the blood poisoning and septicemia set in.
I love the look of wood, but in cars, no. Steel just bends, wood splinters.

I've seen them on sale ay various places, including SuperCheap. I doubt they would sell 'em if they were illegal. Perhaps it's a state by state thing.

If it's illegal, you would still be able to buy one, just not use it.
Look in a tobbaconist's shop these days and you can buy a hash pipe or a bong. I wear a knife on my hip, Now Illegal here but i just got a new buck knife for xmas, so they still sell them too.
It's likely that i could make up some fancy looking seatbelts for an oldholden out of lycra and sell them legally but you try getting your car passed.

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

A man walks into a bar with a steering wheel down his pants
the bar keeper said "that must be annoying"
The man replies "yes its driving me nuts"

My monaro steering wheel is wood does that make it Illegal????

Modified is horrified

Unless the wood rim is reinforced with steel all the way round, yes, it is illegal now.

I have just had my HR over the pits (in WA) with a wood steering wheel not a word was said about it they wee more worried that my front sub-frame only had one bolt securing it rather than 4.

Ive had a wood wheel on my HJ for about 6 years (NSW) and never a thing has been said at rego time. In that time ive used about 3 different garages for the pink slips so you'd think one of them wouldve kicked up a stink.

What about all the classic English sports cars -most have wood wheels, and then there's all the vintage models.

Still, in the light of all this, i wont throw out my original Kingswood wheel yet....better to be safe than sorry.
