Default 96 Steering Wheel Swap

Want to put in a Grant wheel since the air bags went BOOM on the last owner. Does ANY adapter fro a ford pick-up work? Horn does not work now so that is another issue.
ALSO lost the darn screw that holds the window crank on, dropped in the stones at the shop, dealer says 1 week to get one any one have a clue as to what the thread and length might be?

Take Care

there are adapters that work. i would have to look again to find out which one.

as for the window crank screw, remove the passenger side one, go to hardware store and match.

That was what I thought after the post, dumb me!
I tried speedway motors where I get the modified parts and can use a quick release hub like in the modified just no horn that way for sure
Tank you

You could just add a button on the side for the horn

I can get a kit from Grants for a 1994 Ranger, I ASSUME that the steering shaft is the same spline as the 1996 or am I off base?

Thank You

Found out that the 1994 adapter will convert the 1996 to a Grant Wheel.

Does the 94 adapter easily install without any issues?
