Splined to keyed steering wheel

Not sure on the specific wheel you are referencing, but Summitt Performance and others such as Grant, K2, Momo, make a variety of hubs to adapt the wheel to the column. Does your current wheel have a hub or is it integral like the older wheels, if separate simply use that.

The factory 2012 wheel uses a splined shaft to standard 6 bolt pattern adapter and the wheel bolts to a 6 bolt pattern like a grant. The 2013 Gussi steering wheel has an integrated hub which expects a keyed shaft.

Unfortunately it looks like I'd have to replace the tilt mechanism (SH91810) with SH91800 unless I can get Taperflex to just sell me the shaft.

Heard back from Teleflex, they don't just sell the shaft. So to convert to the keyed type wheel means replacing the tilt mechanism.

Yes, although I currently have an older one on the boat - Issotta Zulag. I really hated the single spoke.

So you replacing your Issotta Zulag already?...

Yes, last change (I think). The only gripe I have with the Zulag is that the large spokes obscure the screens more than I like. I understand why they used the single spoke for this dash layout, just don't like the way it operates. The 2013+ wheel doesn't seem like it'll hide as much of the MLS screen.

Hummmmmm.....I'm here in Germany now, have my Zulag in hand, a nice wheel!

Guess I'll see when I get back and put it on how it work out!

I'll have one for sale soon if this all works out. Ordered the new tilt mechanism last night, doesn't look like any big deal to swap it out.

Ordered - Thank you so much for leading the way!

Just don't take apart any more than you need to when swapping the tilt unit.

You only need to remove:

1) The steering wheel adapter (you'll need a puller) - either a 2/3 arm jaw type or if you use a balancer/steering wheel puller you will have to find some long bolts to fit the adapter.

2) Rubber boot

3) plastic bezel (2 Philips screws)

4) 2 big Philips screws holding the tilt unit to the base

5) The allen screw holding the tilt unit shaft to the rack shaft (back one) - you'll have to loosen the other allen screw 1/2 turn or so.

You shouldn't have any trouble selling that one spoke wheel - had a couple people interested in mine when I got rid of it.
