I have a project 9N tractor that needs work. I am trying to get the "Hood" off to work on a number of issues. I have drained the fuel tank, removed the bolts holding the "Hood" on as well as removing the battery and cables as well as the radiator cap.
The "Hood" is free to move around but will not clear the steering wheel. Does the wheel need to come off to get the "Hood" off and if so how. I built a custom puller to un-press the wheel but am fearful of applying too much force to get if off.
So first question is does the steering wheel have to come off to get the "Hood" off? If not what am I missing?
Second, if the steering wheel does need to come off, is there a trick?

You can get the hood off without taking the steering wheel off but it is easier with it off and it only takes a couple of minutes to pull in. I guess the ford shop guys complain about it so on the 8n it's raised up a bit more for clearance.
