Wonder if any one that has a Purple Aluminum Quick Release Steering Wheel Hub, Splined, 5/8 Inch
in their possession could tell me how the release plunger is held in the hub?
All of the ads for those only show the front side of the hub, not the dark side.
I would imagine that has to be some access from the back side to load the
plunger return spring and stop.

Thanks,

Thanks Wane, I'd appreciate that. I'm gonna work out some sort of quick release
I can make in my shop and it might save me some experimenting if I could see
how someone else has already done it.
I can't see where there is a roll pin hole drilled in the promotional pictures.


NEVER MIND!!!!!! Duh.....now that you mentioned it I went back and took another
look and spotted the hole between the three mounting holes. I guess just
taking a casual look at it, it appeared to me to have 4 mounting holes, never
even thought about the fact that all those kart wheels mount with 3 holes.
Easy enough to figure it out now.

I made a redneck quick release, I welded a tube over the wheel hub and drilled a hole through the tube and steering shaft and keep it all together with a lynch pin. Easy Peasy cost about a dollar fitty!

Think that was a few years back Rhys, cheapest I've found, at Summit as I posted, was the
purple one that I've seen several of the guys using. It runs aroung thirty bucks US plus
about $10-$12 more for shipping.

Speaking of shipping..........I ordered from Azusa, an axle, alum sprocket and 5 feet of #35 chain and they
hit my up with $60 worth of shipping and tax. I order from McMaster a couple of times a month, often 6' long
steel and the shipping and tax is never anywhere near that.

Right you are Wane, couldn't score anything under any of the Mfg. Supply links,
but....under ebay-quick disconnects there was a push button hex part for
$15 + $4 shipping.

Looked again Rhys, didn't fine any for $12 at Summit. $25 now
plus the UPS shipping package.

Thanks guys, just what I needed, can't buy the aluminum stock
and hex for twenty bucks.

Makes no dif anymore wane, cuz I already ordered the one off the internet.
I looked at your suggested link, i.e. Mfg Supply, stayed a long time there,
looked in every department and I called it everything I could think of....nota.
If they stock them...they orta make it easy for a guy to find it in their catalog.

The one I bought didn't come splined, neither the part nor the inner sleeve. I did mount it and it does look like it'll work. But I'll have to weld on the inner sleeve I guess. Dang, I thought I could put that buzzbox away for awhile...

Yup weld her on, do it from the top or top end of shaft so you don't have issues with fit

Thanks, that will be easy enough to do. Thought about drilling and pinning it but the stock seems pretty damned hard, and yeah, round...
