I would like to replace the steering wheel on my new Jim Dandy.

Does anyone know if a steering wheel off of another type of tractor will work?

Thanks!

Ebay has them, including NOS ones, but expensive for those.  Put ads and feelers out there, like you have done here. Many times you can fill in yours and re-sand and paint and works pretty good.  I'm not sure of other brands fitting, but most GT wheels are round slip ons or pinned and don't have the splines and nut like these. And some are tapered at the splines, which also won't work. Swap meets and ebay are best sources.

JB weld puddy works well for cosmedics on old steering wheels .

Asteering wheel from any gt that used a Ross steering box should work. Early Cub Cadets for example.

Thanks for everyone's help and advice for a replacement steering wheel.

I found one from an older Cub Cadet that fit great and matches the condition of the rest of the tractor perfectly!
