steering wheel removal
« on: February 10, 2018, 03:47:18 AM »
I want to manufacture the light and throttle controls on the steering wheel of a 1929 Plymouth U.  How do I remove the steering wheel?

Hi Carson,

Removing the steering wheel is a little complicated.  You have to remove the light switch assembly at the bottom of the steering column.  Once this is done you can remove the steering switch tubes.  Problem is if your roof is intact the tubes will not clear the interior roof.  You might have to loosen or reposition the steering box to remove the tubes.  See picture below.



Search "Steering wheel" in the General Discussion Category to find how others removed their steering wheel.  In my case my roof was removed for reconstruction.

All I want to remove is the throttle and light controls... they are shown in your picture. The part with the horn button and the controls are what I need to remove.

Sorry it's all one assembly. reread the post below again.  Its not all that hard but it is a big pain.  The tubs go all the way through the steering box.

Sorry for being the barer of bad news.  Chet...
