Lovely wheel. Can you tell me the diameter please?

What parts of interest do you need? I have a spare head gasket!

It's roughly 32 cm across
Have plenty of head gaskets... no actual idea what parts I would like in trade.. but.. you know... if somebody had something :)... maybe a stock steering wheel in good condition... as I will never want to fit anything else myself really

it was standard on most 2.2's - or maybe only for specific countries. (?)
My ex-belgian 1.6 never had it.

I have a stock steering wheel in good condition if you were interested.  Only problem is that I am in Scotland so postage might be expensive.........

I have a stock steering wheel in good condition too!

I also have 2 braided brake lines and a spare thermostat.

It's like multicoloured swap shop this! (one for the older brits...)

Well, I would be happy to trade for a stock wheel in good condition, but the freight alone would be more then the asking price.

I'll get my wheel weighed tomorrow, or next week, and find out the postage costs.

I have a nice Moto-lita wheel in my car now, but yours looks nicer.

If I had bought the car, I would have take the steering wheel right now!!


Title: Re: S:Momo Steering wheel for Murena.
Post by: krede on January 31, 2008, 11:22:05 pm
Yep... Its a nice wheel... but I find it to restrict the already cramped legroom to much compared to the standard one.

I already have a Momo wheel so I can weigh it for you at the weekend - save taking yours off.

Weighed the wheel with the boss kit (mine is a custom job to allow for a Mountney/Astrali Talbot boss to fit a Momo wheel using a spacer to get the ideal distance between the wheel and the steering column). 

It weighs approx 1.8 kg.  Call it 2kg and you should be safe enough.

Krede, is the steering wheel sold yet....?


Title: Re: S:Momo Steering wheel for Murena.
Post by: krede on February 07, 2008, 06:54:36 pm
Nope... I think Lewisman is working on some clandestine  steering wheel exchange plan , but... I'd prefer cash ... :)


Title: Re: S:Momo Steering wheel for Murena.
Post by: lewisman on February 08, 2008, 01:16:14 am
To be honest I thought macaroni deserved it more than me.  He has only an old Moto-Lita to hold onto ;D

I have a spare Matra wheel which I don't need and your Momo set up looks smart but it is probably not worth paying two lots of postage just to swap wheels when neither of us need to.

If no-one buys it from you we can sort something out but see if you can get someone to part with some cash for it first.

Good luck.

Me wants it VERY much!!

But, since i dont have the car yet......

However, I'm in the last stage of consideration so will probably know what the out come will be over the weekend.

If I buy the car, the steering wheel is sold!

Well, as I already have a gorgeous Moto Lita and Razorback doesn't even have a car, I'll let him have first chance at it.
Why don't you just buy the wheel and start building a Murena around it? There is a chassis for sale on ebay...

It is quite easy to get a 32 cm (best compromise) MOMO on eBay - the adaptor is the hard one. I belive a Talbot Samba or even a Peut 205 will fit.

An extra 1 - 2 cm extra clearance to the dashboard would also do some benefit to the driving position. Modern cars do not use the Jackie Stewart position with straight arms anymore.

Can anyone supply a copy of the MOMO-papers for approval of installation???

On my search for a wheel and adapter I had mixed opinions.
A german shop told that Simca 1000-1100 Chrysler 1307-8 Tagora and Samba/Horizon had the same fit.
At a french shop they offered adapters and sport steering wheels for 49.- for the above cars.
I contacted them if it fitted the Murena, and they told me defenitly not.
The only one that makes adapters for the Murena is Nardi.
So I bought a Nardi adapter (Not cheap).
That fits most common sizes of sport steering wheels.
As far as my memory serves me, it was number 469.
I am still searching for a Talbot steering centre hub.

I made up an adaptor using a Talbot Sunbeam boss kit for an Astrali wheel and an old Renault boss kit for a Momo wheel.  I machined both using a lathe so that they each had a flat surface and then machined a cylinder to act as a spacer between the other two parts.  Tapped a few holes.  Bolted both together - perfect fit.

Possibly not the easiest or cheapest way to do it but I had the Renault boss already and the Astrali one was the only Talbot Boss that I could find (and it was cheap).  Plus I could choose exactly how far the wheel would be from the end of the steering column.

If it is worthwhile to anyone I could take some photos.

Nice job, especialy the centre hub with the Matra sports logo draws my attention.
Where did you get it ?


Title: Re: S:Momo Steering wheel for Murena.
Post by: lewisman on February 13, 2008, 08:41:59 pm
I had some made up as wheel centres and made a few spares.  I prefer the logo without text for anything bigger than a key ring.
