If you're not too concerned with looks, just take two covers, cut
them in half, and lace around enough of each to cover the whole
steering wheel. It worked OK for me...

Or get some custom made. Wheelskins will do it. I ordered one from DC Car
Care (http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.dccarcare.com/) for my 1935 pickup. I would imagine that
any Wheelskin dealer could order a custom size, but a smaller deal might be
more willing (Don Mallinson, proprietor of DC Car Care, is a frequent
contributor to the Taurus SHO e-mail list where I first 'met' him). Of
course the custom size isn't returnable, so measure carefully. You should
measure the circumference all the way around the wheel, not just the
diameter. Also measure the circumference around the rim.

If you look at your starter solanoid you will see the large wires you
mentioned , you will also see a smaller size wire 10 or 12. This wire feeds
power to your truck. Run 2 wires from ampmeter to brake this wire so as to
put the meter in line . Meaning power goes thru the meter to feed truck .

Used to be that all the manufacturers of the wheel covers you see all over
the place made 'Truck' wheel covers. I bought one at Carlisle last week out
of a $1 box - fits my big ol' '51 wheel just fine. I'd try JCWhitney, then
look at the Mfr info on a cover in a parts store, and call them up.

I've seen it a few times before for sale, but this
time the house is also up for sale, so I think they
are serious about selling it. It's been under the
carport or in the garage for a few years. It has
the original paint, faded and a few dents, but it
looks to be in good shape. I stopped and got the
phone number, but the sign didn't have the price.

'61 Econoline Pickup, 530-477-0666

I could easily be persuaded to go and check it out!
It's located in Grass Valley, about 30 miles east
of Sacramento.
