Evergreen Restoration Recover's Old Tractor Steering Wheels
“Customers can send their steering wheel core to have it recovered, or exchange for a core that I’ve already recovered. Or, they can buy a new steering wheel from me,” says owner Jerry Trcka. “I got started recovering old tractor steering wheels about a year ago, when I was able to buy some molds that had been sitting unused in an Iowa rubber shop for a long time.
“Most of the steering wheels that I recover are from tractors built in the 1930’s to the 1950’s. I don’t sandblast or prime them because many people prefer to leave their tractors in original condition without adding anything new to them.”
Trcka also sells replacement gauges for antique tractors including oil, amp, temperature, and fuel gauges for Two-Cylinder and New Generation tractors. In addition, he sells dash lights, tachometers and cables, cigarette lighters, Fiber Optics, indicator lights, and ignition switches for various tractor models.
