Eric,
Yes, have you not trial fitted the steering wheel yet ? Now's a good time.

Larry,

Thank you again for the reply.

I have trial fitted the steering wheel, it all appears to fit well.
I have a picture of the wheel in place.
However all the measurements are out.
Because of this the wheel moves around, the inner tube is not supported correctly at the correct measurement and therefore wobbles.
I am abroad at the moment however when I get back in 12 days this is the first job I intend to do.

Eric,

Define & quantify "measurements are out" .

The measurements being out is not your root problem if the inner tube moves rather they are a result thereof. is the inner clamp tight part #18 tight on part #17 holding the inner tube, part #21 tight ? Take note clamp #18 clamps to lower switch cover #17 which squeezes tightly the inner tube #21 Parts 15 & 9 bolt to #17.
Have you got the outer bearing race in place with the spring and steering wheel in place ? See Fig 72 on pg. S 36 of the B/C shop manual ?

I suggest you review sections 23ST ST26 & Li36 of the shop manual. my post of 11/29/15 to ensure you understand how all this fits together.

I'll have a go at getting it to the measurements as suggested in the workshop manual.

Once I do this I can let you know how I get on, hopefully this should sort the problem.

Thanks to everyone for their input and I'll report back once this is completed.

Larry,

It's a very close copy of the original from Roger Bray.

The cost is very reasonable compared to the original, 27.95 pounds.

Definitely worth considering opposed to the original cost.


I looked up "Roger Bray" online, and found their website, but can't seem to find the coupler there... i know this post is over a year old, but if there's an option out there, and it's below the $100's... i sure would like to find it :)

Would you mind pointing me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

Manuel,

Not everything is listed on the site.
Call them and speak to either Mark or Hendy.
Mention the coupler and if you wish refer to me having bought one in the past.
Send the picture of the coupler I posted.
The will look after you and steer you correctly.
