Default Steering Wheel upgrade

How can I place a more modern steering wheel on my 1981 electric club car DS? Is it possible? Any other steering wheel or steering system upgrade suggestions?

Check with the site sponsors. I have a billet alum wheel on our cart with a billet adapter.

Is it an older model with a three spoke steering wheel like mine? How can I make sure I get the right adapter?

I get from the response that it is not a difficult task. I welcome comments from others who have experienced any problems (or not) changing the steering wheel.

It should be pretty simple to remove old steering wheel and to install new one it should have instructions but i would be willing to bet you could figure it out on your own anyway... Good luck now call a sponsor and get r done

Kind of ironic this thread showed up tonight. Since the lift kit install on my cart, my wheel has not been straight, so this afternoon I figured how hard could it be to get the wheel off, I have removed hundreds of auto steering wheels, even some stubborn ones. Well, I'll just say, I put away the BF hammer, the puller, the air hammer, knee pads and wiped off the feet prints off the dash board...AND MY WHEEL IS STILL CROOKED!!
