I have been looking at the steering wheel in the teal 93 5.0 project car , its grey and the original wheel from the car , so not an SC .. its in very good shape, and its " ok " looking but planned on adding a custom leather wrap to it with a small amount of padding to make it a bit more comfortable and also imo look better .. but until then I was thinking of installing an early SC wheel which is black and it actually may look better anyway... ,not sure what year its off , it may be an 89 or 90 ? ... anyway,. does anyone know if this is a direct swap , anything I should be aware of , electrical contacts etc ?.
I have the whole SC steering column but was just going to pull the wheel and install it on the column in the car.
Thanks in advance .
Dave .

No you don’t. Loosen the bolt but leave it still threaded in a few turns. Now grab both sides of the wheel and wiggle back and forth while pulling on it as hard as you can. It will come right off.

I did get the steering wheels off and swapped, thanks Mike , what I ended up doing was I backed off the bolt and then pulled fairly hard and then my boy gave the head of the bolt a few good taps with a hammer, just pulling on it felt like it was going to damage the wheel , but either way they are swapped and I/we do like the black SC wheel better so it may just stay that way .. will try to post a pic on the Moon roof install thread .
Thanks again for your input .
