I have just bought an Allis Chalmers "CA" and have direct access to 2 others. What type of substance does one refinish the steering wheels with? (Driving these things can be dirtier than changing oil on a dusty tractor.) I need to use an all-weather substance (long-lasting preferably) as there are no guarantees that these machines will always be stored under cover.

The wheel off my B had the usual cracks and the worn-out outside. I fixed the cracks with epoxy putty, sanded the cracks smooth with the rest of the wheel. I then bought some Plasti-Dip from Napa which is a rubber coating used to coat tool handles etc.,and dipped my steering wheel in the Plasti-dip till I got the whole outside of the wheel coated, then let it cure for a couple days. It came out great, and I saved myself $75-$85 for a repro steering wheel and put it toward something else needed for the tractor. The Plasti-Dip comes in a small 14.5 oz can. I bought a couple of them and dumped them into a small flat pan deep enough to dip the wheel into as I turned the wheel slow dipping it into the pan till I got all the way around. The Napa P/N- is 765-2502 Black. Hope this helps you out...

Minn-Kota will re-surface your steering wheel for you to pretty much original specs. I have not dealt with them yet (that's next on my to-do list ...) but friends that have highly recommend them. They advertise in the Old Allis News.
