Just acquired a 350 SE(Euro only) and seek a smaller steering wheel.
This 1979 M-B is in lovely condition, but it has the approximately 17" OEM steering wheel. I would like to find a nice OEM or like steering wheel that is about 15 inches or 400 mm. What are the key parameters for hub fitting and where might I begin to look? Are there other models and years which might be compatible? Since this model was never imported into the USA by M-B info is proving a bit hard to come by so far, but then I've not had it very long. It is not my first M-B, but it has been quite a few years since the last one.
I've completely restored a 356 Porsche ('64 Cabriolet) from the ground up so protracted parts chasing is now second nature. Is a parts catalog available for this model online somewhere or perhaps microfiche is available? Ich hab nur ein bischen Deutch, i.e., it is very rusty but was almost fluent many decades ago, if that will help. Since this is my first post here let me accept my gratitude for whatever assistance may be offered, even it be only commiseration. [8D]
