    Momo Wheel

    Has anyone had any joy tracking down an adapter for a Momo steering wheel? Can they be made?

    I could get them made if someone provided me with some sort of sample or dimensions.

    I am sure there are adapters out there that will work, just a matter of buying one that is long enough.

    The spline pattern on the column is 9/16"-36 splines. There are a lot of cars on the road with this pattern. I recall seeing in other threads that standard Fiero adapters will work if you add a spacer to space the steering wheel a little further out.

    Some quick reading shows the bolt pattern for the wheel is different and the turn signal pins are not present

    You can make your own adapter. See my post #6140 under "What Have You Done to Your DeLorean" on page 614 (dated 11/19/16). In fact I may still have that piece of superb engineering somewhere.

    I've tried 9/16-36 and they are too small for the splines at my steering wheel. Just by chance I had a 990016 Borgeson 1/2 rag joint which is listed as 11/16-36 and it fits perfectly on the splines at the steering wheel.

    Also looks like it might hold the steering wheel base far enough away from the signal gear mounting plate to provide enough space (about 1") for a clockspring.

    Wow, 11/16-36? Dang; I'll have to check my notes. I'll take your word for it though.

    Did DMCMW officially stop making these? Last I heard a couple of years ago they were having the machine shop next door make them in small batches. If you haven't reached out yet, they might be able to do another run of parts.
