    Help I'm Looking for an Adaptor / Boss to mate a Moon Steering wheel, to a Chevrolet AD steering column, I couldn't find one listed on the Mooneyes site. I have been told that a Grant Adaptor will do, does anybody know the part number / model number. Thanks.

    I'm sure the BIG car parts stores carry the Grant steering wheels and asessories... Just bring it with ya so you could match it up to an adaptor.

    Thanks for the tip, but I Live in the UK, some four hours away from any US car parts store, so I will probably have to buy mail order from somewhere. thats why I nned a part number or at least some indication if a later boss/adaptor will fit the column.

    If you have a rotted AD truck wheel you can cut the center and make your own.
    Pretty straight forward job.

    If your Moon is like my old one here, I used a Grant adapter kit for it. I've never had one of those trucks but if the spline is the same as any Chevy (I think so) then any Chevy adapter will work. The different model Chevrolet kits were often just the different sized chrome bell included to match the diameter of the turn signal housing. They made one adapter for each spline available and added the appropriately sized chrome bell for the application on the kit. The chrome bell is not an easy thing to fabricate but you might be able to find a small stainless cup or bowl to make one. It will depend on your column mast and whether it has a turn signal housing or not.

    Moon used to stock them, so I'd shoot them an email and double check if you don't see it on their site.

    They were out of the adapters when I bought my steering wheel from them last year, but they gave me the part number and I ran to the local parts store to grab it. I'm sure they'd hook you up with the number if you gave them a buzz.
     
  10. If you go to Jegs or Summit, they list them by application......
