There were at least three distinctly different steering wheels used on the Super Maramu during the production that yielded 479 examples over 16 years. I don’t remember the time period each wheel was built in, so sending measurements is a good idea. When I asked Jacques Carteau the reason for the changes, he mentioned that he was always looking to lighten the wheel without decreasing strength. Why? To put less of a load on the chain riven autopilot drive to the steering rack and reduce inertial loads on the entire system as it shifts direction.
This is just one interesting example of the thought and minutia present in the evolution of the Super Maramu.
