I am in need of a new steering wheel for my 1976 446. I see the new style that was offered in the parts area is NLA. Anybody have any idea where else I might find a 5/8" keyed steering wheel?

My 224's wheel measures 14" diameter and 4" dish, from the bottom of the hub to the top of the hand grip. I found this one at 14- 3/4 " diameter, unfortunately they don't list the dish dimension, and you would need a adaptor bushing Bob mentioned. This is the closed I have found so far, will keep looking ;-)


Cheers,
Gordy

It likely wouldn't take much to adapt one of these to fit: 13.5" Steering Wheel 17 mm 40 Spline Hub | Other Miscellaneous | Miscellaneous | www.surpluscenter.com

It has a 17mm (.669 inch) spline hole, which could be drilled out to 5/8 (.625) pretty easily. Then all you have to do is cut/file a keyway.
Font Circle Parallel Number Slope


Of course, it doesn't address the length/depth of the housing where it slides onto the keyed part of the shaft. And it doesn't adress the dish.

But it seems like it's probably workable with some effort.

Looking around for info on the steering shaft, I came across this post.

I think this approach is hard to beat.

Agree ... this is the approach we have been recommending to customers for a while now, but none had provided direct feedback on the outcome.

I had not seen RKH's post on this set up with the widely available Husq steering wheels ... looks great.
