Steering Wheel Adapter

I read a few posts and have read the FAQ's in regards to a MOMO steering wheel adapter? I would like to replace my wheel. Anyone have a source for the adapter? I read that in 2003, tweelve adapters became available. I may be to late. MOMO part # 5607 is not available anymore. Has anyone tried GRANT?

I would also be interested to know of any steering wheel replacement suggestions. My factor wheel is a bit bent I think... it rubs on the column rubber and squeeks when I turn it - driving me nuts. A cooler looking wheel would be nice in any event...

I have researched this quite extensively, the momo adapter that was available here is no longer produced or at least imported here. That being said if you find a shop with one on the shelve you will probably get it. I called Momo USA and Canada and they gave me the last shops they were shipped to and those places were out of stock.

The best way I have found is to order an Astrali hub from the UK. You may be able to find a momo adapter overseas as well with a little leg work.
Hope that helps.
Dennis

Rubbing Steering Wheel

Jason: my '94 D90 steering wheel scrubbed on the plastic behind it and it drove me crazy trying to get it stopped. I squirted grease, graphite, you name it but nothing helped. Here's how I fixed it;you don't have to remove the wheel. Take off the plastic housing below the wheel, top and bottom; there are about 6 screws. You will note that there is a protrusion in the plastic that fits up into the back of the wheel. If the screws in the plastic are overtightened, the protrusion is pushed forward into the wheel and makes a scraping noise. I took an air abrasion tool and ground off the protrusion. Doesn't squeak or rub now. Good luck.

James,
Good info! I already tried a few lubricants & nothing has helped. It is damn annoying -- I'll give that a shot.
Thanks~

Hi Guys,

My assumption is that MOMO may be the same fitting as SPARCO...ie. standard 6 screw. If this is the case there are several suppliers in Europe..www.grandprixraceware.fr (in french)...or as I recall under the brand 'equipe 4 x 4' avaliable from various supplier in france - also seem to have a number of adaptors.

I believe the last MOMO adaptors were purchased during our group order early last year. I looked everywhere in the country and outside of the country for those things and the only ones that ever came available were the 12 that I found in France and had shipped here. The rep did call me again saying he might have found another, but I could never reach him after that and I think it was just a mistake. Anyway, good luck, it is worth the search.

-Matt

Momo Hub Adapter?

Did anyone find an alternate supplier or source?

I'm on it, I promise. Things have been nuts at work. I will have these ready to go soon, at a good price. I can have them done sooner, but getting the price into the very reasonable mark has been tough.

I have a MOMO adapter K5511 I picked up off ebay that while it does not specify for Defender did fit perfectly on my 97 NAS SW. When I looked around it seemed like these were readily available. If David can get you hooked up i would go that route first as this unit seemed kind of poorly built for the price.

The URL you posted does not seem to work, could you verify it for me?

Thanks! :-)

Dennis, I can't seem to find a momo hub adapter number K5511 or even 5511. Could you double check that number?

David You are still working on Fabricating them?

David,

Just wanted to know if you are still working on frabricating the adapters? I know you were a couple months ago and assume from your response that is what you are talking about. I am still interested.

Thanks again,
Larry

If the assumption is true (the 6-bolt thingy), then it seems to me that we could at least re-drill the $30 MOMO adaptor available on the web site (http://www.gprdirect.com/ - search for momo).

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Loic.

Yeah,

Your missing the splines. The rover splined adapter is no longer available. Also, from what I have seen it is poorly designed and expensive. I will have one CNC machined out of billet AL with a tight spline pattern and the ability to accept any type of wheel you want. The whole issue is price. Right now they are expensive, so I am pulling strings with a few machine shops to get the price down to below typical rover levels.

Yes, I do have one made. Thanks for the offer but I know a bunch of machine shops that will give me a discount. I sell endmills for a living so I am pretty hooked up. It is just a matter of finding a shop where they have down machine time. Which is hard with how busy everybody is. Also, I am working with AMI to get cheap AL. Which is difficult to. I hope to have this done soon!

Oh, and I have to machine a custom broach for the rover spline count. That is another issue.
