Steering problem

2386 8
Ok guys i have got some great tips from TomFL but for reason my old steering wheel does not want to come off. I have tried everything, i plan on buying a new helm anyways but to make sure i buy the right one i need to get the old off which is not possiable unless i get the wheel off. I am to the point where i am ready just cut the old one off, Any other suggestions out there for me?

Brass hammer to tap the top of the tapered stem, and loosen the corrosion weld.
Torch to heat the metal core of the wheel and loosen the corrosion weld.
Gear puller

You did remember to loosen the nut? Right? ;)

if you put the heat to it and its plastic you can kiss it goodbye , just the same though the plastic ones are cheap $$$ . i would try a gear puller and soak it with penetrating oil. if that doesnt do it then cut it

Improvise...adapt...overcome!

More than one way to skin a cat. Glad to see you got it off.
