I needed to put a smaller steering wheel in my original column and move the seat back because I am 6'3". I read lots of posts because I wanted the change to go smoothly. I bought the wheel and adapter from one place (Forever Sharp) thinking that would help things to work together. I got a 40-48 Ford tapered keyed adapter that connects to a three to five bolt billet adapter and then to the wheel. It seemed to go well, but there were almost no threads left for the nut. I tapped the keyed adapter with a wood block to make sure it was seated on all the way. Has anyone had this happen? Is there another company/adapter that works better? Is there a thinner adapter? Thanks for any info.
