Nope, MGB is the same as later Spridgets. I have interchanged the same wheel between both. Early and later cars have a different line count, but should be the same diameter.

Hi,

So if Pat's wheel is loose on the MM column, it must be bigger than 3/4"? MGB wheel? I think Range Rover and MGB are interchangeable. spline-wise, but don't take my word for that.

I have heard of a car being steered by Mole grips (self locking pliers). A pair of Moles would let you steer it like a bike, but not a good idea on the public road.

So, it's not the steering wheel that is the problem...

Very scary stuff.

The wiring is just as "customized" as the steering shaft.
It was an easy decision to trailer my new toy home!

Hey Pat,

That might be from the Datsun that was the donor for the engine and tranny. I haven't gotten back to you on spare parts that you asked about, are you still interested?
