I recently got the Grant steering wheel spacers #4000 (2") and #4001 (1") to move the wheel closer to the driver. Either spacer will work, although neither one is really designed right for the Grant XR4 hub. In either case, you can install them just by removing the 5 Allen screws from the stock Grant wheel face - you don't have to pull the hub off the steering column. Both spacers are about $20 at the local auto parts stores, most likely a special order.
I am using the 1" spacer for now. The 2" space worked fine, but it was a real stretch to the turn signals and wiper lever (about 5 inches) with that spacer. You get used to the location with the wheel as a reference. It is real strange groping for them once you have taken your hand off the wheel!
First the 2" spacer:
The 1" spacer:
My Grant wheel is marked "Made in Italy" on the back
& I've had it on 3 cars now over the years, and I think it
has a mix of metric and SAE threads.
One word of caution: 10-32 screws are NOT interchangeable with metric M5x0.9 screws! They look almost identical. Believe me, they are not. If the Allen screws too are snug, you may be running into this problem. Even with a thread gauge, it is not easy to differentiate between them, especially when your eyes aren't what they used to be!
