After one of these if someone's wanting to part ways or has a spare

They're a bit pricey new from Repco

    Thanks I'm aware of those ones. Will resort to that if I can't source elsewhere

  • The Momo ones are a bit better quality than the Autotechnica ones IMHO but they still require a modification to get the indicator stalk to cancel properly.
  • I'm pretty sure I've got a spare. I'll have to check. I had bought one and then I got another with a steering wheel I bought. It is in storage so it may take a day or 2 to check.
    I'm in Sydney but I can send it to Port Melbourne through my companies internal mail for free.
    Interested?
    What are you offering?
    If you have a '90's 240 green book workshop manual I'd be interested in part swap.
    I also picked up a 1974 140 Volvo greenbook and p1800 greenbook on the weekend if your interested in the 140 book.

    Cheers

    What modification is that? I'm running a Momo boss and the indicators seem to cancel fine, but I bought mine used so maybe it was already modified.

    On the two Momo ones I have, they have two longitudinal ribs in the casting to cancel the indicator. I found the spacing on them was inadequate and the indicator often cancelled when entering a roundabout. I compared it to the original steering wheel indicator cancellation feature which was wider, and I folded up a small piece of tin to replicate the original shape and screwed it onto the ribs of the boss. Now works like a charm.

    i actually ended up just purchasing the momo one off ebay. the steering wheel arrived today. i assume i will make the same mod as you @carnut222

    @Ramrodfunk unfortunately saw this after i made the purchase
  • No worries. It is a bit annoying without doing the mod. I haven't modded mine but i think i will.
