Just a quick post hopefully to help someone who is fitting a moto lita wheel. I had real problems fitting it without the horn sounding either constantly or intermittently as the metal wheel earthed against the horn ring. The trick for me was to make sure the sliding joint that moves the steering wheel backwards and forwards was pulled far enough back by releasing the lock nut and loosening the Allen bolt so when the wheel was tightened on to the splines and taper there was enough clearance to stop the wheel contacting the horn ring. Also, if you remove the wheel and, like me tap the inner column with a drift to break the taper, don’t forget that doing so will probably push the inner column inwards and reduce the afore mentioned clearance and cause the horn to sound again. Took me a while to work that one out! You also you may find positioning the outer column nearer the dashboard helps get a bit more clearance. Hopefully may help someone work all this out quicker than me!! Bob
Can anyone recommend a supplier for quality parts? Discovered some dodgy wheel bearings have disintegrated after only a year on the off side rear of my Spitfire. Also looking at replacing my Moto-Lita leather steering wheel (13"/flat/holes) with a 14" wooden dished example. If I sell the Moto-Lita on eBay it looks like I'll make the amount needed to buy a new unbranded wooden steering wheel like this: http://tinyurl.com/pbahzrz Does anyone have any experience on the quality of these unbranded steering wheels? And is there anywhere better to buy/sell than eBay? Ben
