Default NRG Hub & Nardi Wheel Install

I have a NRG slim hub, AWorks quick release off of Zilvia.net, and a Nardi Personal wheel. I have everything hooked up and working but my steering wheel was off center. I took it back apart after driving it and noticed that the NRG hub only has one spot in it for the pigtail to run through, which I had enlarged with a drill bit. I can get my hub to straighten up if I rotate that yellow cover on the clock spring but the arrow will not align if I do so. Is it ok to rotate that? What purpose does lining up the arrow on the clockspring with the top of the hub do? Thanks.

or call the hub manufacturer and ask them... I doubt anyone here is going to have first hand knowledge of such a specific setup.

Lol thanks bryan. The clockspring only affects how soon the blinker disengages itself, so I just turn my hub until the wheel was aligned. It's not 100% perfect but I'll have it fixed during my next alignment. For the record, I rotated the clockspring almost 180 degrees from its starting point and my blinkers are working perfectly fine. I'll throw some pics up of the wheel.


EDIT: 100th post!
