Can you believe i didnt pass because of my steering wheel. When i bought the truck it had a small grant steering wheel and the inspector said its to small. So can anyone tell me what the factory wheel size is and the dish depth.
I have a grant 13 1/2 inch on it which I think is small for the truck since the power asst is not working. The inspector just told me it would not pass. I'll make some calls and see what the laws are for steering wheel. I'm trying to figure out how to post pics. Newbie
I had to go through an inspection lane on my way through chicago once in my 77 f-150 and they jacked me around on my steering wheel as well. They said it wasn't "factory" made. Granted thats not why i had to go through the lane but the wheel was also a grant 15in" i beleive. which are made to replace the factory 16 or 17" steering wheels. Kind of bogus they nit pick that kind of stuff if you ask me.
Believe it or not I don't think this would have been an issue in Kalifornia... No safety inspections; at least not in Norcal (not sure if any counties or cities mandate one). They just want to violate your tailpipe if you are '76 or newer.
I suppose if you got pulled over a cop could give you some grief over it.
