Could have fooled me.  I thought this was a Navajo code talker transmission.

Boss kit, also Aussie slang for sports steeering wheel adapter.

 

Basic how to follows:

 

 

Park car.

 

Align wheels so they face forward.

 

Remove horn ringand/or centre cover so steering column nut is exposed.

 

Undo nut from the column.

 

Now comes the fun bit.  Most column shafts have a tapered fit in the steering boss which causes them to be somewhat difficult to remove from the steering column.

 

Best method here is to use the palms of your hands and belt the beejeebus out of the wheel at the 12, 6, 9 and 3 oclock positions.  This will eventually break the taper and the old unit should then slide off.

 

Before you fit the new boss kit and aftermarket wheel to the sterring column, make sure your horn adapter and contact point(s) for the horn are setup and ready to go.

 

Reinstall wheel.  n.b.  There should be a small dimple on the steering column shaft indicating it is more or less centered (wheel alignments will affect the positioning of the steering wheel relevant to the position of the front wheels).

 

Do up column nut nice and tight.

 

Enjoy your new go fast steering wheel :thumbup:

 

Dependent on how small a diameter you go with an aftermarket wheel, you may need to shorten your inidcator stalk accordingly.

Turn head to right or left so you don't knock front teeth out

Leave nut on but unscrew a few turns, then continue below. This way the steering wheel won't knock your teeth out.

On yanking old steering wheels, don't belt on it.  Work it back and forth, side to side while pulling.  Push one side, pull the other side 180 degrees from each other.  Works like magic!  There isn't a single steering wheel I couldn't get off by hand in the wrecking yard when I worked there.

Or you can pull the nut of flush with the end of the shaft. And hit it with a mallet. I usualy aim for the "do not hit with a mallet" sticker.

Pros use wheel pullers theres even a dimple for the tip in the shaft already.
