[Healeys] Steering Wheel Hub and Shaft Spline Fit

Might be worth a try to attack the shaft splines with a wire wheel on a drill in a semi-aggressive or aggressive manner.  It is amazing how the least little burr can bind things up.  Just a thought.

Subject: [Healeys] Steering Wheel Hub and Shaft Spline Fit

 Hello, Has anyone experienced a problem fitting the steering wheel onto the splined steering shaft? I can get the steering wheel hub to go onto the shaft the length of the collet but then it hits a dead stop. I have checked both the male and female splines and there are no obvious problems. The steering wheel is from a Mk 1 BT7 and the steering box is from a BJ7 and they have never been together before. The fit should be loose enough to allow the hub to slide on the shaft but that doesn't seem to be the case. It seems like either the OD of the shaft to too large or the ID of the hub too small. Any help is appreciated.... Harold  _______________________________________________
