Steering Wheel Won't Recenter

I just had a new steering wheel (wood and leather) installed on my R129 ... looks great ... BUT turning it is very stiff and after making a turn, the steering wheel will not recenter itself - the car will continue in a turn untill you forcibly turn the wheel back to center.

Also, I hear a "sliding" sound when the wheel is turned than I never noticed with the original wheel.

BTW, the new steering wheel was made from an OEM wheel.

Anyone ever heard of this before?? I'm hoping the problem is with the installation and can be easily corrected. Any help greatly appreciated!
