I just installed a Grant steering wheel and I have a 1/4" gap between the black spacer and the column. I've heard I could loosen the column and slide it up to close the gap. I loosened most of the bolts I could find, but I could not budge the column. What am I doing wrong?

Your column may already be extended as far as possible. 1/4" is not a very big gap.

Leave it, you have done all you can do, been there done that, smallest is about 1/8" gap, for some reason the base of the Grant wheel doesn't slide into the cover.

I have a quick fix for ya.

Step 1
Remove the wheel and adapter, box it up, and send it back.

Step2
Order a LeCarra

Step3
Spend 15 minutes installing everything, including a horn button that works...

Well, it sounds like I'll replace it with a different wheel. I hate that gap and the wheel is too small and hard to turn with manual steering. Another auction to be placed on eBay.
