unless your old mechanic used a large hammer to pound the grant adapter plate into place. Threads are stripped and things are almost, but not quite, FUBAR. This was the same mechanic who "lost" my previous 1969 rim blow steering wheel in the first place. :mad: Talk about adding insult to injury

Lost? A $500 steering wheel? More likely it ended up on eBay.

Does your Grant hub have two bolt holes for the wheel puller? If not, drill and tap them. It's not like you care about it.

I think the wheel ended up at a local swap meet in Beaver Falls, PA. As for the Grant adapter, it was wedged deep in the column and had to be removed with a puller/extractor. It was cheaper to repair the steering column than get a new one, but not by much.

I'm glad you decided to get rid of the Grant crap. Sorry to hear about your hassle.

I wouldn't call that guy a mechanic either. He does not deserve that title.
