Question 1973 steering wheel removal ??????

HELP!!!

I have a '73 1/2 911T and am trying to change out the steering wheel. I remove the horn button/cover from the center of the wheel, and am left looking at a small hole in the center of the wheel. The bolt that I think clearly will allow me to remove the steering wheel is on the other side of that center hole, and about twice as big as said hole.......how do I get at it???? is there some simple secret????

Do you have a stock wheel? Can you post a picture?

My wheel is held on with a nut requiring a 27 mm socket. I can easily get the socket into the hole for boththe stock and aftermarket momo wheel.

Depends on which wheel you have. See if this is what you are looking at:

OK, am I ever smart...I posted a reply to the other link....

Anyhow- here are two pictures of the steering wheel without the horn pad/mechanism. You may not be able to see too well, but the nut is much larger than the hole in front of it . ( the dark circle in the center is just the shaft that the nut is screwed onto. I also loosened and looked behind a circular plate on the back side. It doesn't seem to allow me to get at anything that I can unscrew or remove. To get any better look from the backside, I will have to remove the turn-signal and washer/wiper lever assemblies....I don't want to do that if not totally neccesary!!!!

That round disk in the middle is NOT on my wheel. That is where the nut is.

Can you grip the edge of that disk with a wrench of some sort and turn it?

Or perhaps it is some type of press on fastener where you will need a wheel puller to remove the wheel by pressing it out?

Also, post this question on the Early 911S BBS (http://www.early911sregistry.org/forum/index.php). Maybe someone there can help you out.
