I'm looking at a Formuling wheel for sale. The spline setup was for a 1976 porsche. After doing research, the spline size was the same as the later style air cooled Volkswagens (which should be the mk1/2 small spline shaft sizes). Anyways when I tried to put it on mine, it didn't fit. The wheels spline was just slightly too big.

Anyways what I'm asking is, would I be able to get this steering wheel to fit? Seems like there isn't many hub adapters for Formuling wheels out there. What are some alternatives routes to go about this? I really like this wheel and would like to be able to run it.

So the steering wheel use a hub adaptor to mount to the column? Maybe I different brand(momo,grant,nardi) has the same bolt pattern.

From my understanding it's a very obscure bolt pattern. The bolts you can fainly see on the wheel in the picture is the pattern shown. I've just been having a hard time finding information and I'm not too savy about wheel spline information... Took me a LONG time just to find spline sizes other than "big" and "small" for mk2s.

Maybe you could get one and dill and tap it to the right pattern? Or if you know someone that is a machinist maybe you can have them do something like this http://www.ngpracing.com/store/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=5444 for you.

First off, I am going to advise that you throw that wheel away. They crack and break. Not a real fan the part that helps steer the car breaking.

Now if you must install this dangerous item, I need to know what kind of car you are trying to put it on.

So does Italvolanti if you want obscure and badass.

Although I'm currently rocking a Momo Prototipo.

Italvolanti made the original VWMS steering wheels ;)
