I'm going to measure out the splines tonight (had to get a different wheel puller, mine wouldn't fit it), and see what it resembles, figure I'll ask the pinz guys if it fits there.VinceAtReal4x4s wrote:If you do have some trace of a steering wheel, why can't you use that to build off of?

I never needed to get into this issue so I dont know more about it but the wheel would not be made just for the 303. It could even be from the same company that built the Pinz wheel. The axles were built by the same guys who make them for Land Rover, and there are several other Land Rover compatible parts on it....
By the way, you should get different tires for that thing.
And now I'm going to put on low profile 20" wheels.
The steering wheel, is a bit of a story. I bought it from an artist in California, (www.baronmargo.com) who originally was going to turn it into an art piece. He welded together a solid aluminum wheel for it, which, while it is a piece of work, makes it completely undrivable for me, as he must have been exceedingly short. He has requested that I return the wheel to him if I'm not going to use it, (artist stuff I guess) and I'd like very much to abide by this request, but if I can't find anything else, I'm afraid I will have to just modify the wheel.
I'm prepared to fabricate any other part, modify anything to get this thing running, but an internal spline cut for a steering wheel is something my poor little machine shop just isn't capable of doing.
Of all the annoying little problems to have...
