I have a large 3 jaw puller on mine have hit puller 3 times . Going to put the hair drier on it now.
Hair drier blowing on nut on steering got it to hot to touch started turning puller . Pulled plastic steering wheel off the metal insert . Now I can put some heat on the metal insert & pull it off . Want to install quick detach steering wheel.
Took the shaft with hub on it to my 20 ton press had close ten ton on it when the shaft violently shot out of the hub. They must have went way over on the foot pounds on the nut.If the pull force is off axis at all, you will cause binding and this will work against you. That is why I feel the best answer is a steering wheel puller or tugging wildly back and forth like you are pissed of at it. I almost gave up trying to get it off with bare hands when I angrily tugged side-to-side and it came off suddenly
