Product didn't fit my Original 1931 Model A Ford steering column as advertised. Had to take part to a Machine Shop to have it turned in a lathe so it would fit.
Cons:
  • bad fitment
No, I would not recommend this product.

If this adapter is used,is there any way to use the original horn wire or to install a horn button on the wheel,and does it leave much of a gap between the collum and the adapter?

You inquired about our adapter number 91632765 which adapts an aftermarket 3 bolt steering wheel to the early 28-48 tapered and keyed column shaft. The dimensions are as follows: Top of Taper = .755" Bottom of Taper = .680" Length of Taper = 1.130" Keyway Width = 3/16" Lower Flange Thickness = .360" Now to utilize a horn button and your existing wire I would suggest our steering wheel adapter kit number 4103196 which has more than what you need but is the most economical way. If your horn wire runs up the center of the shaft it would be possible to use these components. Other than that you will need to drill a hole in the adapter through which to run the wire. I would need to know your exact application to give any other suggestions.
