Can anyone confirm? I think they are all fairly standard.

Well according to vip they have a 1 inch and 36 spline, a 7/8 and 36 spline and a 1 inch and 40 spline.
I think that mine is a 7/8 shaft and 36 spline.
I wouldn't worry about getting a smaller wheel but I'm 6'2" 325 lbs and there ain't much room between me and the wheel. Go figure!! :D :roll:

I went to VIP after Dan told me, and i bought the 18 but you have to buy the center Eagle logo from eagle, I do have a few left that i bought so if anyone want one just let me know, but as far as the wheel is I ordered the one on the list they have and it worked great no problems, and i have tilt/tel wheel.

Changed mine out last year, and it is an 18" seems to be working for me. At least now I can see my fuel gauge. The Eagle emblem from the old wheel went right into the middle.

Julio, On my list of things to do someday "POWER STEERING" ;)
Then of course I'll have to have a tilt wheel and a new steering wheel similar to Don's!

Thanks for the compliment Paul.

That is an old shot of the dash area and steering wheel (last spring) and a lot has changed since then. I have been caught up in a floor project in my bus shop and have not had time to take some more recent pictures. Been hitting it early in the morning, put on the Boze headphones, MP3 player and grab a sander!

Lot of fun … Trust me.

Try to get something up for you that is current on the dash and steering wheel make- over this weekend if time allows.
