Hey everyone, not sure if you are all still looking for the Momo adapter hubs, but I just got one from the following web site: http://www.ltbmotorsports.com/hubkit.html

I purchased the 5607 ($65) and put it in my 95 ST tonight with my new Momo Tuner wheel (http://www.shopmomo.com/tun35bk0s.html)

Looks great and works perfectly.

Just wanted to let you all know in case anyone was still looking.

Greg.

The only mod I needed to do was some trimming of the little "neck" on the plastic steering column cover closest to the hub. I took about a 1/8" off with a hack saw and a file. This eliminates any rubbing of the back of the hub on the steering column cover.

Let me know if it works!

Greg.

DONE! PERFECT!

The hardest part was removing the old steering wheel... After beating it and wiggling it to no avail I finally gave up and went to get a steering wheel remover. However Wal-Mart (only place open at 10:30) did not have one. I ended up using two ratchet straps, hooked on to the steering wheel at 9 and 3 and then to the rollbar that's right above the front seats. Tighten em up as tight as you can get them and then beat a little bit with the hammer on the back of the wheel. Use Bucks advice and make sure the nut is on the end of the thread- it could make quite an effective steering wheel catapault.

THANKS GREG!

Trae,

I am glad it worked for you! If only everything was that easy.

Take care,

Greg

Did you guys get the adaptor done? If yes, what steering wheel did you use with it?

I got the adapter and momo wheel per bozeman's post. Filed down the plastic neck on the steering column plastics. Works great, no problems, totally mint. So much better than that shit stock wheel!

Hadn't seen this thread before, but will throw in a couple of thoughts from a UK perspective...

There are at least 3 different centres on different ages of Defender. (That may not be a problem in the US obviously as you have a restricted range of years.)

My Momo adapter was made by QT Services (www.qtservices.co.uk). To get over the problem of the range of centres, I gave them a wheel which fitted (bent one from a crashed defender) and I beleive they cut the centre from that to weld into their adapter. Looking at their site, it appears they don't need to do that any more.

Beware the smaller steering wheel - it makes the car feel more twitchy at high speed, and you have to work harder at low speeds. Personally I love it, others do not.

I'm in final testing right now. I have two adapters made. I will post pics when I can. Sorry for the long delay.

See,

I have been working on this, just not a high priority. This is perfect except the broach for the splines is .003 too small so the splines don't line up Now I have to pony up for a new broach. The finished product will be unscratched though. Spending a lot of money on you guys stinks! I will get to it, it just takes me a while. Thanks guys

you guys realize that the momo hub adapter fits fine right ? Its nowhere near the work of machining art that Buck has pictured but I think its like $60.

Is it back in production? If it is, I will drop doing this as it was only to fill a need for us. Although, mine is an inch thinner so for tall people it is a big plus. It also fits all Grant wheels for those on a budget, but, I can't make it for less than the Momo one. Mine will be $100, but way higher quality than the other one.

But like I said, getting this thing perfect and at a decent price has been a real PITA so if the MOMO made adapter is back, I will somewhat happily let this go.
