hello to all I have to replace the old steering wheel with a motolita. I wanted to know if when I pull the short tube away I just have to remove the clip and then the steering wheel is free. Thank you all

Stefano,

To replace the steering wheel you will have to remove the trafficator with its wiring. Then the wheel will come off when the clip is removed.

Depends, adjustable or non-adjustable wheel? I have one of each. The adjustable was easy as described above. The non-adjustable not so much. It's the same up to remove the clip and the wheel comes off. The non-adjustable is secured with a nut to the steering shaft. That came off easily but the wheel itself was stuck on the shaft but good. I had to cobble together a puller and crank on it with a large breaker bar to remove the wheel. It will be going back on with a liberal dose of anti-seize.

The Moto-Lita is a great complement to the big Healey's interior.

Thanks to everyone, my steering wheel is of the adjustable type. Disconnecting the wires is challenging, but I have already done so. So it's about removing the clip that I think I can do with an awl. Thanks again regards Stefano
