What bolt count is the wheel hub? I want to do the quick release/detachable steering wheel and delete the clock spring and air bag (broke mine off roading) and I want to do a nice clean setup. NRG seems to make some good ones. But it’s a universal 6 bolt. Anyone know what bolt count it is??

Should just be 1 bolt. On my mustang I had to grind a flat spot on the steering shaft then weld the collar of the quick hub to the shaft and the other part of the hub bolted to steering wheel. I used a recaro wheel

Does anyone know of an adapter to fit the hub? Or what size that one piece is to put in a 6 bolt adapter? I wanna use a 6 bolt quick release in the wheel.

Found a bunch in a search. All over 100 bucks

One at summit was cheaper but only came up during a ranger search, at the site said it was for F150.

I'd have to hold one in my hand before I would recommend it to a member. Have never used one but it does increase the steering wheel options doesn't it?

A quick release hub is kinda universal

Our steering wheels have a splined piece that hold the steering wheel in. There needs to be a splined piece that goes to turn the tires. The splined adapter will have a 6-bolt adapter to bolt the quick release hub that will then hold the wheel. I found the hub and wheel I want. Does anyone know what spline count and size our wheels have? Because I want to either fab my own or just find one that may fit a mustang or a Mazda Miata or something with similar drive controls. I don’t wanna pull my wheel off and then do it. I get one day off a week so time to do stuff is limited.

I just saw this, if you still need spline info I have a steering wheel in the basement I can count.
