Steering wheel puller
« on: September 27, 2013, 11:21:54 AM »
Hello guys,

well i started looking at my steering wheel, which is still attached to the steering column  ,

i saw on-line that there is a puller for it (available for about a hundred bucks) , it's a pitty to buy one for 10 min of work,

does anyone here have the unique puller? i would love to borrow it so i can start working on my steering wheel.

Thanks!

Eyal

any machine shop can  make this easy. You can make it even without a lathe, cut a 3-point piece of from some flat iron or weld pieces together. Put a hole in the middle and weld a nut.

i know that they can make it easily :) , and at the same time take about the same amount of money from me.

i don't have a welder at home so i cannot make it to....

Actually the pictured tool is for Pontons and 300's wouldn't work for 170/220 steering wheels.  The inside hub is different and does not have the lugs .... just 3 holes (see attached picture).  It would be fairly easy to make your own puller from a flat plate, holes matching the wheel and a center hole for a jacking bolt.

I was lucky to be able to pull mine off with little effort and without the use of any tool.
