706 steering wheel kicking my butt!

Hey guys,

I cannot after weeks of penetrating lube, get the steering wheel off of my 706. The cap is long since gone and the nut that holds the steering wheel on is gone as well. I assume and am convinced its rusted beyond my original thoughts. Any advice on a very stubborn steering wheel? My puller keeps slipping off!

Thanks,
Cole

If the plastic's all gone, then you can really get at it with some heat. It's going to take more than a propane torch. Need some oxygen mixed in there.

I put the torque t mine, and t he PB Blaster, and the propane torch, and did that day after day, leaving the puller and torque on. Every day I"d re-torque it, tighten her up, heat her up.... finally after 7 - 10 days it popped loose. But I think the secret was leaving the torque on it, and increasing it, day after day.

If you are reusing the wheel the only advice I can give is to pull up on the rim with at least 100 pounds of force where the spokes attach, then use a sharp 1/2" cold chisel, place the chisel radially out from the shaft and strike it firmly, not radically. Move 60 degrees and do it again. Repeat all around, then do it again all around in the same grooves. This expands the diameter of the hub evenly and also shocks the splines. Jim

My steering wheel is the spitting image as the one below. The only thing is, it looks like they beat the heck out of the Hub with a hammer it is completely dented. I'm afraid that squeezed the hub tighter on the shaft. I will try heat and time with my 3 jaw puller

As open as that one, try putting a 8 pound sledge as a buck behind the hub and whacking sideways on it with a 2 pound hammer. Sledge under it and hammer from top. (not down the shaft, perpendicular to the shaft! It swells the hub. Jim

Here are a few pictures of a plate puller that I used to pull steering wheels. I install the plate over the end of the steering shaft, tighten up the bolts putting tension on the hub and then rap the top of the tool with a hammer and big punch. The steering wheel usually pops loose. This steering wheel is in bad shape, the plastic hub is all gone. With the plastic gone you can also hook a 3 jaw puller on the steel hub. I hope this helps. Good luck

Before I try to pull a steering wheel - I drill a shallow hole in the center of the steering shaft. That will help hold the puller in place.

If the two 1/4x28 bolt holes are plum gone history ain't no more , then you need to find a large bearing splitter and go around the back side and a good two jaw puller . . and IF that fales to get results then you are in need of a used steering hand pump. and a new steering wheel.

As was said,make a puller from a piece of heavy steel.1/2(+)by 1 or 1 1/2 will suffice.Couple of bolts in the two small holes.A1/2" bolt in the center to do the 'work'.When the thing is tight,a sharp rap with a mammer will most generally jar it loose.

Can you not just pull from the center puller hole on the steering wheel shaft? I have a the three way puller and put it behind the center of the shaft and placed the puller on top of the threaded portion.

If the steering wheel is still intact, not just the metal hub, there is just too much flex to get good solid force.

I am pulling from behind the hup. It's a small puller. Would you happen to have a picture or schematics on how to make the puller you described?

Are you sure the nut is completely gone. I pulled on a couple years ago that had just a very little of the original nut left on shaft. Also, the pulling has to be done in the two tapped holes. If you try to pull on the outside there is just too much flex in the wheel. Did you make a puller out of a piece of heavy iron. Simple and best.

Get a good hold and pull as hard as you can,steady pressure, and hit the shaft with an air hammer. That thing will shoot off and smack you in the teeth if you are not watching.
