    Default Steering wheel

    Hi, I need to change the steering wheel on my old lund boat. In order to take the old one off. I have to take out two screws out of the back side of the wheel, that are about three inches from the center.
    I am new to boats and don't know how many ways steering wheels are attached. Is mine a common one? Is there a name for it? Will finding a new wheel be hard to find.? thank you for the help.

    OK. I finally got the screws out of the back of the wheel. All that did was take off the cover over the nut.
    The nut is on a five eights shaft with a key in it. I don't know yet if the shaft is tappered or not, because I have not been able to get the wheel to come off the shaft. It is soaking in penetrating oil and I will try again. Thank you for the help.
