Steering wheels & fittings


Someone, sometime asked me if we had a source for steering wheel boss' and the special little bolts that fix the wheel to it.

Well I have a prototype boss here beautifully machined from a solid billet of Aluminum. It will be drilled for the little grub screws that hold the horn/trafficators central.

Comes with the outer fixing ring, bolts to fit the wheel and the large, black coated adjustable nut.

There is a lot of work in re-manufacturing the steel, centrally splined fitting inside the boss.

what I need to know firstly is, how many people are interested in these as this will affect the overall price. 

Also, does anyone need a steering wheel. These could be reproduced if I managed to raise enough interest.

Hi, I have a Jensen 541 that uses the same Bluemels adjustable nut. I just wanted to check that you were buying this "off the shelf" as it is readily available from some Jaguar specialists at a reasonable price, and there is no need to have this part specially machined like the boss!

Assuming it is the same nut internally, it is available from David Manners as "STRNGWHEEL LOCKNUT XK120" , part number C3721/1 ( a pattern part).  Mine was almost identical to the original apart from the Bluemels stamped writing not being embossed in the black coating. (& not being mangled by a pipe wrench!).

There's also a circlip, costing pennies, to stop it sliding off the shaft: C1036.

Yeah it's quite embarrassing when you haven't had time to fit the circlip...

I don't want to go into it.
