In Reply to: STEERING WHEEL RESTORATION posted by Tim Daley(MI) on January 13, 2019 at 06:37:55:
Probably 15 years ago I repaired a badly damaged steering wheel on my 8N with lots of plumber's epoxy (NOT plumber's putty). Plumber's epoxy comes in a skinny tube and is kneaded to make a final mix. It is malleable enough to shape nicely but solid enough to not run. It is sandable into final shape. I replaced entire sections that were missing down to the steel rim and also filled numerous cracks after beveling them. After final shaping and sanding, I painted with matte epoxy spray paint. It will never be show quality, but it looks and functions darned well compared with the original one with large chunks missing. It has not cracked in 15 years. This may not be what you need for your situation, but it may be helpful to others with cleaned-up working tractors.
