Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Fox "fat-man" steering wheel, need help with how to install cover set screws

I am installing my Fox "fat-man" steering wheel on the speedster project. It is a really nice item, and works very good. But how do I lock the cover into place on the planetary gear housing. There are two holes in the normal location of the stock set screw. One on each side. But they are a lot bigger holes. You can see all the way thru from top to bottom beside the gear case threads. The holes also seem to have a "square" side to the hole that may be stock to the fox assembly. The other problem is that the screw or lock or whatever fits into the hole must sit flush or just below the surface because the steering wheel casting turns and "runs" on that surface. Nothing can stick above the flat surface. It looks like it may have been some kind of a long "key type" of item that sticks in from the top and is somehow held in place from below ??????? But I am just guessing ... So if anyone has one of these wheels and knows how it locks into place, please let me know .... Thanks ....

Only have looked at these adv. of that Fox.

Appears the 'pins' may have square side so that they slide down into the gear case gear tooth.

The underside of the Fox cover should have openings to put a small punch in there to remove those special pins. Replacing the pins would require the cover to align with the case at two of the teeth in the case.

Dan, Thanks for the copies of the ad. That about explains it all. Now I need to machine me a couple keys to fit that square sided hole ... Do you have complete copies of both sides of that ad in higher resolution you could send me. Or what magazine is it from. I would like to add it to my accessory album that Im compiling for the speedster project. Mark. It was daja-vue to see my Fox fat-man wheel from 5 years ago in the link above. :-) :-) Thanks .......

Donnie, here are some pictures of one I have. The pins are 7/8" long and are 1/8"x3/16". Hope this helps.

Duane, Thanks for the photos of the pin. It appears that it is the same size as the pins on my fat-man steering wheel.
