Plus2 steering column spline

PostPost by: desprit dan » Mon Sep 13, 2010 2:46 pm

Is the top steering column spline the same as another more common vehicle, or is it Lotus specific? I have 2 Plus2s that need steering wheels but not at current prices for originals!

The later, collapsable, ones are Triumph items - I think from the GT6/Vitesse. It's quite easy to get a Motalita steering wheel (Matty's et al) for them...

During the recent rebuild I swapped the early column for the later collapsible one. The steering wheel fitted both columns, so I guess they have the same splines.
