Hi Baller,

Newbie here, but asking the same question as you, I don’t suppose that you found the answer by chance?

I have a Mk1 steering column off a car. I will count the number of splines and the overall diameter and post the results tomorrow (Tues).

After going 'bogeyed' and a couple of recounts🤓, there are 48 splines. The shaft diameter immediately below the splines is 1.75cm (11/16") and the od diameter of the splined area is 1.9cm (3/4").
Hope this helps.

I have a Moto-Lita wheel on my Stag, so I emailed them to see if any of their wheel bosses will fit. This is the reply

Hi Chris

A B23 will fit one of our standard wheels. Boss price is £54.00 plus VAT, the wheel is extra, plus shipping.

Kind regards
