    Steering Wheel Boss

    Hi,
    I bought an aftermarket steering wheel, which is a 70mm PCD unlike the old mountney which was 100mm pcd. My problem is I cannot find a steering boss to match the 40 splines 20mm shaft on my Nova. I did purchase one from ebay advertised as classic beetle when it arrived it was only 16mm shaft.
    Got me thinking then if my steering column is a beetle at all?
    Just wondering has anyone encountered this issue.
    Thanks

    A photo of the column would help

    If it is a VW part it WILL have a VW part number somewhere.

    I think there seems to be a change around the end (ish) of 1973.

    So pre change is 20mm 40 spline & the later one is 16mm.

    Cheers.

    I'll try and get a pic posted up. The column has the ignition on the right with the indicator assembly above it, stalk to the left. I may be wrong but does some older beetles have the ignition on the dash? I Tried local motor shops this weekend, nobody stocks anything like this.
