Help with Comfort Grip Steering Wheel Question

I searched and found nada. Converting from a standard 1969/70 steering wheel to the Comfort Grip Steering Wheel. My question is this: Do I leave off the part shown below or reinstall it with the Comfort Grip Wheel Adapter? TIA.

BTW: I have a very nice complete, used, reproduction Steering Wheel that I no longer need. If you're interested, PM me and we can work something out

Bruce, my experience has been that what is mounted to the column stays put and just the wheel itself is changed. Terry

When I removed the stock 70 Wheel from my Wagon, I just pulled the wheel ( only) and attached the repo. three spoke.

They are correct, you do not need to remove anything.

No, the pictured part held on with three tiny screws stays where it was, attached to the lock plate. The adapter goes on over the lock plate, followed by the steering wheel itself. Be sure to line up the index mark on the steering shaft with the mark on the adapter.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Re: Help with Comfort Grip Steering Wheel Question

The part your showing stays on. When mounting a Comfort Grip Wheel you need to buy this hub and then mount the wheel to that along with the horn kit and horn button.

Re: Help with Comfort Grip Steering Wheel Question

I just finished installing one in my 72. Only issue I had was the horn contact was too short. I installed a small screw on the new horn contact so it would engage the horn pin in the column. Worked perfectly. the new wheel was also a pretty snug fit on the but seated properly as I tightened the hub nut.
