The steering wheel was falling apart. The previous
owner had covered it but it just didn't feel safe as it moved in your hands.
I first asked on GMCMotorhome mailing list and got some suggestions. I
went to Jeg's (high perf store with plenty of hot-rod supplies. Cheapest
wheel was $59 plus a $15 adaptor, and it looked cheap too. Next off to
the junk yard. I found that there were very few steering wheels in the
cars in the yard. I wondered about why others needed this many replacement
wheels. I first found a wheel in a Chevy S10 pickup, about 1990 model.
Removed it and went on. Next I found a GMC Safari mini-van with a GMC logo
no less. I removed it also. Next I found a nice leather wrap wheel in a
compact car, started to remove it but the center cap broke from sun rot.
Left it and headed home.
Cost: $7.00 (plus another $7 for the extra wheel)
Time: 1 hour at the junk yard, 30 minutes to
Tools needed: sockets up to 7/8", wheel
puller ($14 at Autozone), screw drivers.
Notice the horn connector to the top left of center below. There
must be a hole in the steering wheel you choose. Both the Chevy and GMC
wheels that I picked would work here.
