1966 Mustang Steering wheel removal and replacement

Dear Forum Members:
I have a 1966 coupe. It is a restomod but I would like to replace the steering wheel and place a more original on instead. Can I do it myself and how long does this process take. Thanks!

Yes you can and its fairly simple, less than a few hours. You'll need a special steering wheel puller tool that can be rented free from local parts stores like o'reilly, and some common tools, particularly a 15/16 socket for the retaining nut.

I'm not sure what type of wheel you're removing or the parts, but a good rule of thumb is to document each part as it's removed so you know the order of how it would go back on. There are many different wheels in many configurations, so there's no universal configuration of the hub, contact rings, etc. If you're putting on a factory wheel after you remove yours and don't have instructions, let us know if you need help with that.

As an extra reminder, be sure to mark the spline and the steering wheel so the wheel can go back on straight. Put a very light oil on the spline before installing your new wheel for ease of removal in the future. Good luck!
