STEERING WHEEL INSERTS
WHInserts.jpg
These are a perfect match for the originals in size, shape and fit. These are our full color non-fadei decals (not the originals) and they are encased in doming UV plastic to eliminate damage. Each of them are available without the logo, as a plain insert (also many other brand garden tractors used the same steering wheels and exact same inserts). Style #2 used a silver & black decal, available from us, $2. With the domed decals, $15, or 2/$25. Plain inserts, with no decal, $10. Shipping is usually about $3. Style #3 is also available in clear, for the Elec-Trac Wheel Horse tractors made by GE & WH.
Also, seven other brands of tractors used this exact same style #3 black steering wheel insert on their tractors in the 60's (Jacobson Chief, Ford 80, M-M T&C, Ariens, Bolens, TruTest & White).

** With all knobs & inserts, it is a good idea to add a drop or two of Rubber Cement (tire/tube), because all plastic expands & contracts in hot & cold weather, the plastic loosens, falls out and is often lost. Rubber cement will hold them on snugly, but if pulled slowly for a minute or two, it will yield without any damage. Use "Meguiar's Plastic Protectant" to restore the oils and shine that all Plastic looses over time, works on any plastic or rubber part on your Wheel Horse.

 

$10 each,   plus $3 shipping.           (We also have the same size Insert with TORO now.  )

GT-14 Steering Wheel INSERT

fb7db634-7524-44f9-a96a-220f22452fc3_zps

This larger cap insert will will replace the original 21/2"OD Insert that has been lost from the majority of GT-14 Steering Wheels.  This new larger 33/8"OD cup shape fits entirely over the center raised area of where the original snap-in Insert was, and the cupped edges fit down over the sides, completely covering it.  It will fit all three styles (both 2 and 3 spoke) of GT-14 Steering Wheels; the flexing of the rim in temperature swings caused the centers to pull out, enlarging the opening which released the original inserts, giving the center an oval or triangle shape from the spokes pulling. Our new insert cap/cup will still allow for this normal rim flex, plus, this insert will still fit over your deformed center.  The center has an identical original insert cast into it and it is protected with a hardened dome clear epoxy coating.  The cap is screwed into a U-shape bracket which is held in by the original 3/8" steering wheel bolt. 

Included: is the Black cap with insert, two #6 U-clips, two #6 SS Screws, 3/8" Washer and the pre-bent Aluminum U-bracket.

 

Cost is $20@,  plus $3 First Class Shipping.
