I bought the Comfort Grip steering wheel KIT
from a vendor to install on my 69 Camaro. It uses the same hub as the wood wheel-Rosewood or Walnut.
So the hub that comes in the kit mounts on the steering column but leaves an unsightly gap about a 1/4 inch or more between the hub
and the column--not good. I have seen 69 Camaros at shows with a Rosewood and also with the Comfort Grip that have no ugly gap. So where did they get their hub. This has now become an extemely large pain in the
*** for me. I sent back 3 hubs -- none of the repros fit correct.
Okay so I go on Ebay and spend 75.00 dollars for a GM hub that is
"supposed" to be the original and correct hub that was used from the factory. GM part number 3937896. I figured I cant go wrong with the original part. Boy was I wrong again. Its fits exactly like the 3 repros I had. It leaves an ugly 1/4 inch or more gap. This sucks and is wrong
and Im not accepting a fit like that. Especially when I know the correct hub exists out there cause Ive seen 69 Camaros with a nice tight fit hub.
If anyone knows for sure the corrrect 69-70 comfort grip steering wheel hub that a 69 Camaro uses and the GM part number can you please let me know. I WAS ASSURED THAT THE 3937896 WAS THE CORRECT ONE FOR A 69 CAMARO. IT IS NOT.
ONE MORE THING -- I KNOW THAT THE STEERING COLUMN IN MY CAR IS THE ORIGINAL CORRECT 69 CAMARO STEERING COLUMN AND HAS NOT BEEN CHANGED. IT IS NOT A TILT COLUMN EITHER. IT IS A STANDARD COLUMN. MY CAR HAS A FLOOR SHIFT WITH CONSOLE ALSO. I HOPE
SOMEONE CAN ONCE AND FOR ALL TELL ME WHAT OR WHERE ON EARTH TO GET THE RIGHT HUB BECAUSE I AM COMPLETELY DISGUSTED AT THIS POINT AND TIRED OF THROWING MONEY AWAY ON SHIPPING, RETURNING, AND BUYING MORE STUFF THAT IS WRONG. THANKS IN ADVANCE.
