    i was checking out the forum but I couldn't find the info. Does anyone know what the diameter of the hub bolt is on the steering wheel column so I can buy an after market hub adaptor for my 6 bolt steering wheel?

    Any help is greatly appreciated !!

    Research here suggest Forever Sharp steering wheels has a 3 hole adapter size B02 and use of a 3 hole to 6 hole .5" spacer will allow you to adapt any aftermarket wheel (6 hole) closer to the dash than any SS specific hub out there.

    Mine is shipped and should be installed later this week.

    If you are not using the Momo GT50 steering wheel or another wheel that has a domed horn button you will have serious fitment issues with the .5" spacer. In other words if the horn button sits flat against the middle of the wheel the steering shaft and horn wires will pop out your horn. You will need the 1.5" to have good clearance and some wheels can get away with the 1".

    I've tried 2 different wheels with all 3 spacer sizes. Had to customize the Momo wheel to fit the .5" spacer.

    Now you tell me @WraithSS. :D

    I was looking to move a NRG wheel as close to the dash as possible. I'll have to order the other two spacers to ensure no down time.

    Well, I have all three sizes in order and will be able to say for certain this weekend which will work with the NRG wheels.

    Wanting to stay as close to dash as possible is the goal. Stock distance will work for me too I guess.

    @WraithSS with the 1.5" how closer or further is it from the dash as compared to stock?

    If my memory serves correctly it is just a tiny bit closer. That's why I kept working till I could get a wheel even closer.

    Sorry to dig up this older thread but does anybody here know the diameter of the driving shaft in metric and the numbers of splines on it?
    I'm going to look out for an aftermarket steering wheel but off course I need a hub adapter to install it.
    Easy part would be just to order one from slingmods or another vendor but the shipping costs to europe would be higher than the price of the hub itself.
    So I first want to see if I can find it here somewhere in a local shop.
