How is a 67 Mustang steering wheel removed? And, is there a specific position when putting it back on so the wheel is "centered" when driving straight? My steering wheel is ****-eyed to the right right now. As I am driving, the 3 spokes are off-centered to the right as if I am making a right turn. THANKS

It's not too dificult to remove and reposition a steering wheel. Once you have the pad off, it's no more difficult than removing the nut from the column shaft, pulling the wheel off, repositioning the wheel according to the amount of mis-alignment you have already pre-measured...and then reinstalling the wheel and nut. If you have trouble pulling the wheel off without tools, you can get a steering wheel puller at your local car parts store.

I have pulled my grant wheel off twice trying to get it lined up with the wheels. Still no success on that. of course I don't think it's that difficult and my father gives me some fool proof instructions. But I still can't get right. I think it's an experience thing.
3rd try is a charm though.

a nut on the rod keeps the wheel on the shaft. Remove it then remove the wheel with wheel-puller if need. Good luck

I am about to remove my 67 Deluxe steering wheel to install at motolite one, how do I get the pad off to get to the nut?

The pad and the metal 3 spoke horn ring simply screw off counter-clockwise. Just hold the pad and turn it counter-clockwise. Watch out when you screw off the metal horn ring as the spring underneath will pop it out towards you and you don't want to scratch the steering wheel or any part of the interior as it goes flying back at you! So, hold tight onto the metal ring. Then, to install the horn ring back on, push down and find the holes on the steering wheel into which it locks, then turn it clock-wise until it fits back in.
