I got the throttle quadrant in a couple of weeks ago.. Morphing a Quicksilver ratchet shifter to the underside to work with the tranny.

All right, last year I had saved a stock big block and a decent twin turbo set up for another project, that I realized might be nice for this project. I got a offer that I thought was bigger than any future need for the stuff. MY MISTAKE; I'll find another.
On the other hand I HAD kept a steering wheel that is a perfect 89 match. It was a new wheel identical to the one that Nitro has posted. One of my guys at the shop had it mistaken for another wheel, and put it on a client's car. When I went to look for it, he told me the story. I called my client, but he had already sold the car (some time ago).
I NEED some help finding another wheel. Any ideas? I can't even tell you the original manufactuer, but I know the wheel.

Nate has the correct wheel. Mountney British GT but I think it is 13 inch not 12.

Nice quadrant there is really no need for modification you can run a cable or rod linkage to that baby just fine.

Nitro,

Thanks for the good info. After looking at it, you're right; I will probably use the B&M cable. Thank you again.

You're right Nitro.... It was Nate's, but I appreciate the help. Remembering it was a V-8 TR6 converion that we had and I kept the wheel after we mis-ordered the polished instead of black. Realized that it was the 89's wheel. THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Nitro,

I ordered the wheel yesterday. I will worry about the hub when I get the column in. The cap (cover) is something I'll have to sit on the lathe with. I can probably make a few if anyone needs one. Also, I will need to see if you'll part with a bat or two.
