Lifeline QR boss orientation

Hi.

    New 7 owner (2008 SV), first time poster. With the original Momo steering wheel, the 3 bolts point up/12 o´clock. Got a new Sparco, which is drilled pointing to 6 o´clock/down. Can anyone tell me if there´s an easy fix to have the ´fat´ spline (13 spline) pointing down to match the Sparco?

IIRC, you can disconnect the lower steering column from the universal joint where it connects to the rack and rotate it by 180 degrees.

As Stu says. Disconnect universal joint (either from rack or steering column) and rotate 180 degrees. Make sure bolt goes back in the groove when you reconnect.
