Default 140 vs early 240 steering wheels

I assume there is a difference between 140 steering column splines and 240 steering column splines?

Where do I look for a momo pattern hub?

Spline is the same but there's a few different hubs through the years.

'67-'72 140's use a different hub than '73- 140/240's do. The splines might be the same but the turn signal canceler and horn contact are different.

There's also the issue of how far away the stalks are. An early 140 is more like a 700 series car, in how far out the rim is from the mounting nut. I've seen a 1971 142E with a 1973-76 wheel installed. There's a good 5-6" or so between the rim of the wheel and the stalks. A bit of a reach. You run into the same problem with a 240 wheel on a 740, at least without adjusting the column position. I have seen a 1972 140 wheel installed on a 1982 245T. It fits, but the wheel is very close to the stalks, since it is, after all, pretty flat.


1982 242Ti - black, M46. 1985 245Ti - blue, M46. Formerly Blue245Ti, 245GT-Turbo, and, originally 242GT-Ti.
