Having already received one Momo solid hub that wouldn't go on the steering shaft, on the recommendation of a gent who I buy tools and custom Porsche parts from I tried Amazon for what was purported to be a MOMO 8002 solid hub.

What showed up from "LTB Autosports" turned out NOT TO BE a solid hub as advertised.
Anyone can plainly see from the measurements this one wouldn't ever work regardless of configuation.

Before I raise the white flag I'm open to suggestions. Jimmy Tidwell made some of these at one time but as the market was covered he prefers to make things you cannot easily buy.

OTOH, Ive got a half dozen cool period wheels looking for a car. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chowtime.gif)


Thanks

Tom

PS: Box is marked 89-97 Mazda Miata but also has a MOMO 8002 sticker "for Porsche" on it.

There are 2 different hubs for 914.

Post a pic of the back of your stock steering wheel splines.

If there's a taper before the splines it's a late unit, no taper is early.

I have a used momo solid hub for late if that's the one you end up needing.

Call Louis. He's one of the good guys, fellow VW racer, wouldn't screw anyone. He'll make it right.

BTW, I buy *all* my Momo stuff directly from him.

I'm sure this is an honest mistake. I don't want to throw anyone under a bus but it is frustrating to get an item that was illustrated as a solid hub and then find that it wouldn't fit anyway.

Thanks.

Yep as mentioned that early hub isn't made anymore and used ones are thin on the ground,I seem to remember early Golf and 944 are the same spline but don't know if you can make them work.

In my opinion, the stock wheel is the best looking one on a 914.

According to baseball rules I have now struck out. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

The 3rd hub showed yesterday looking as if it had been used for "catch" in the warehouse. Missing parts and the box had plenty of shelf wear. "New Old Stock". lol

CSR from the company who sold it couldn't have been nicer and apologized for the issue. Gave full credit for shipping and return costs. I like this outfit and only wish it had turned out better.

I've noted that the 8002 solid hubs don't come with a horn button retainer. How does that work? Every MOMO hub I've owned always had one.

First....what year is your 914?

Looking at this same problem myself right now. I have a 1971 914-4.
The solid adapter shown in post #4 looks like what you need.


Different adapters have completely different "architecture" on the side of the hub away from where the steering wheel mounts.
Some stick out and one is recessed (8002).
I'll bet you need the solid/recessed one (8002) that is shown in post #4, 3rd and 4th pics.
That's what I need for my car.

You will need to swap over the cancelling ring from the backside of your stock steering wheel to the back of the Momo adapter.

A horn button retainer is not on the adapter....it is just the center of the steering wheel itself.

Looks like 8002 do exist out there.
I just ordered a 8002 from Pelican Parts.
We'll see what shows up.

Here's a couple on Ebay:

(Ten available)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Momo-8002-Steering...QgAAOSwSrNaTSJA

The box that was marked 8002 Miata was clearly mismarked.....bummer.

This looks identical to my shaft on my 71 914-4.
Except I don't see the black plastic square "thingy" with the copper horn contact ring that sits on top of it.

I'll have the 8002 hub in about a week with any luck and see if everything mounts up correctly and report back here.

If you have a 70-71 914,, with the a 70-71 column,, you need the even more rare
MOMO hub 8000......it has the deeper recess you mention

Thanks for the link. I took a breather and went on to the next project which was tires. That's finished so the wheel hub is back in the crosshairs.

I bought one of those Luisi hubs for my 1970 914 earlier this year. The horn button plunger does not fit correctly in the hub. The ended up putting an aftermarket remote horn button in the dash.
