Dave, I spent every night for a week trying to get the steering wheel off my 582. The 782 steering shaft should be the same. I made this to fit in my air chisel. Weld a nut on a steel rod that fits in the steering shaft and into the air chisel. A little WD, pull up on the steering wheel and tap the trigger and it will fly right off. I was stand on my tractor and pulling as hard as i could with one hand and hit the trigger.... not pretty. Lucky it didn't cost me a trip to the dentist.
