I tried and tried but, I couldnt save the steering wheel and my MF 12 G and had to cut it off. Does anyone know of a wheel I can use if I cant come up with and original replacement? (not had any luck there yet) Even if its an aftermarket custom automotive with the adaptor if need be.................(sigh) I guess I could live with that.

Ebay is a good place to start. I had a spare about 3 months ago, but sold it.

You could get the shaft out easily with shaft cut off. The underside of the steering wheel is strong, so you could put it in a press & push the shaft out. I did just that with one off a Massey yesterday to use it on my JD diesel conversion tractor. I just set the steering wheel in a large vice, then using a drift pin, gave the shaft a few good whacks & she popped right out.

Thanks olcowhand...........I was antsy about it considering the removal of the original wheel. You've inspired me! I may just have to go for it!

I have a steering wheel off a 12 and one off a 16. I just dont remember which came off which. If you need one let me know. I have a 50/50 percent of being right. I also have a deck from a 12 that I will make someone a good deal on.

The 10's, 12's, 14 & 16's, and all the way through the 1855 use the same shaft size. I'm using a Massey MF85 steering wheel on my JB diesel conversion, using a Massey MF12 shaft welded to my power steering stub shaft. Most make steering wheels will interchange, unless the keyed style as on the Sears Suburbans. I have a MF1650 steering wheel on my other Bush Hog JBI with original Bush Hog steering column.

You might take a look at these:
Surplus Center - 15" DIAM. STEERING WHEEL 11/16" 40T SPLINE BORE
There's no picture, but I'm sure they'd be happy to talk to you. The specs appear to be right, & I doubt you'll beat the $10 price
