Interesting discussion about smaller Steering Wheels ...
Interesting discussion on the R107 Facebook page about using W124 Steering Wheels and "quick ratio steering gear boxes" on R107s.
Here is the Steering Gear Box:
And the smaller but fatter steering wheel - see photo #1.
I've been using a W124 Steering Wheel on my 560SL for some time. Original Steering Wheel was worn. Air Bag fitted nicely too - photo #2.
I like the looks of the non-Airbag wheel in photo #1 better.
Also the smoother fatter surface versus the textured surface on my W124 wheel.
Just slightly smaller - photo #3.
