Default 74 140 Steering Column

Hey folks.

Wondering if you can help me out. If nothing else I'll document my issue and the resolution and perhaps help someone in the future!

I have a 1974 142 GL that I'd like to install a nice wooden steering wheel on (the safety sally wheel on it is killing my vibe).... specifically the Momo Heritage Indy. It is a 350mm wheel with the standard momo fitment (70mm) and a center horn.

https://www.momo.com/en-us/product/heritage-indy/

In the forum archives I found one reference that the splines on the later 140's (73/74) are the same as the early 240's....and thus momo kit #0315 is needed, however the only ebay seller I have found says 0315 does not fit my car and thus I need a more expensive Nardi adapter, which he says is tapped for both Nardi (73mm) and MOMO wheels (70mm).

The 0315 kit appears to be very rough looking with a smaller diameter and has no rubber surround, creating a less than ideal look. Link here:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/MOMO-Steerin...n5-mQA&vxp=mtr

The Nardi adapter (Nardi part# 4301.00.5302) looks much more finished, but I'm concerned that it won't mate perfectly with the Momo wheel with full horn operation etc:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nardi-Steer....c100005.m1851

Anyone have any experience with this or any of these parts? I'm sure I'll be able to eventually chase this down to a conclusion, but I'd prefer to have some direction before I make a bunch of purchases and returns learning the hard way.

Thanks!!

The Nardi worked for me in my 73 142. But when the car is close to a body and year change be prepared to return!!

perfect.

Are you running a Nardi wheel or a momo? Any chance of posting a pic?

Cheers

Just happened to see this link in a for sale thread for a Volvo steering wheel today. Might be worth checking out. Note the one review where someone says it worked in his '73 142.
