Next Up-Date - specifically the 'end of the manual Saginaw in the 3B'... Especially detailed for those wanting to keep a 'stock look' - well as close as I could and replace the normally worn out Ross parts with good stuff. The final piece of the front work was to figure where the support bearing needed to go. You have to put one in as I used 2 knuckles to get things to fit and flow nice. From there I switched to building the 'Adapter' to fit a stock steering wheel on the Speedway Column. The column comes with a 'quick disconnect hub' (though the pin on this one was broken - it comes with a bolt setup too and that is recommended for 'highway use'). My first step was to set the mounting bolts on a pattern and use them to triangulate the center I needed for the plate. The plate is 3/8" thick - more than required, but what I had on hand that would be nice and thick to support the welding on. The center is 15/16" and allowed a nice slip fit of the cut down column out of the Ross Steering shaft. I cleaned up the splines and threads (20NF) so I could use the stock nut and cover as well. I held it centered and square with 3 90 degree magnets. Spot welded, then went back and did back to front. The back was flap wheeled smooth to clear and make sure it mounted to the hub clean. I don't know about you guys, but the stock wheel is normally a HUGE PITA to take off. I cut the column on this one to remove it since I knew I was not keeping it any how. They come off back wards like butter . To that point, I made sure I left room to get a wrench between the wheel and hub so it could be pulled like that if needed. My recommendation to Jim is to just glue some welting in there as most Grant adapters have a plastic collar to hide the spacing. This will let you pull it in the future if you need to easily. All in all - I think it looks pretty good. You would be hard pressed to tell a difference with a little paint if you want to go that far.
