1992 Mark, wheel bolted right on, I had to use the pigtail ends from the mustang clock spring spliced to the mark clock spring to make the electrical items functional.No lights, no blinking.
There is no gap between the wheel and column.I will get a pic soon

So basically swap the clockspring and the wheel is a bolt-on? Nice. Is it more comfortable to hold? My big complaint with the stock Mark bomb wheel is that the spokes are too fat, and it doesn't really feel comfortable to drive with my hand around them.

I didnt change my clock spring, I just cut and spliced new connectors from the mustang.
I mostly changed for aesthetic reasons, imho the stock 90-92 wheel is hideous.
Not enough seat time yet to assess comfort level

l
so Mark VII clock spring and the original type plug spliced into the later air bag?

agreed on the 90-92 wheel being less than awesome looking.

Exactly, original clock spring with pigtail ends from mustang, 5 wires total 3 for horn/cruise, 2 for air bag all splices done to clock spring side.

I cannot answer that definitively.
When I started to research changing the original wheel all the info I was able to find said that the Mark VIII steering shaft was different. I can neither confirm or deny that.

wouldn't be overly surprised if it is. Very different chassis, the SN95 is pretty much a warmed over Fox chassis.

A member here sold me a 'stang plastic wheel ~ 10 yrs. ago, and the VII air bag went right into the same pocket and it fit the spline and hooked up the same.

The early 90s Towncar wheel is also exactly the same as the Mark VII wheel, other than its smooth leather vs perforated. Useful since they do not "ooze" like the originals do, but it doesn't change how it looks or feels in any significant way. Seems that many Ford products used that same wheel from about 1990-1994.
