MOMO steering wheel

Hey all, I got the Defender bug and am in the middle of restoring my '88 110. It's a RH drive 3.5 V8 South African wagon and I'm looking to change out the steering wheel with a MOMO wheel.
I believe the '88 has a 36 Spline Boss?!? Has anyone replaced the stock steering wheel on an older Defender? I did a quick search and most of it was on NAS Rovers.

I'm looking at something like this.



Thanks for any input or suggestions.

I'm a pretty tall guy 6'6" and am also looking for gaining a little more room on entry and exit of the vehicle. Will the slimline move the steering wheel closer to the dash?

I'm planning on using a Moto-Lita on mine since they have a15 inch wheel available.

Buy direct from England while the British pound is low - $1.28 today

I have a Momo Tuner on mine with their boss. Works great.

Just be sure to check the splines. I hear that there are several different spines which thwart some folks. Personally, I thought they all were 36, but I have been told I was mistaken, so worth checking before buying...

Good point. I'll have the shop double check the 110 before I order one up.

Pull your wheel off and do a spline count as mentioned above. Either that or post a picture of your current wheel.

MOMO steering wheel

My Defender is in South Africa and I'm on the East Coast.
The web page is spot on. Thx!
Here's s pic of my current steering wheel.



Silly question but does the blinker, etc stay on the column or do I have to get a new set that goes along with the new wheel?

Yours should be a 36 spline

Web Rover

The turn signals and all are on the shaft not the wheel. The aftermarket wheel may not cancel the turn signal after you turn.

Some of the Td5 and the Puma trucks are a 48 spline even thought the wheels look like an NAS 36 spline wheel. But the Puma does not have the turn signal cancellation part, its electronic.
