I have used this method in the past when a puller was not available,
Lossen the nut off untill it flush with top of the shaft, while seated behind the wheel and pulling upwards, have some strike the shaft using a brass punch and hammer, a couple of good hard strikes and the wheel will loosen off.
Take a close look at your shaft and steering wheel, you will see two alignment marks, line these up when you reassemble,
Have you removed the the three screws and plate for the horn ring, there is also a fine plastic / paper insulator that has to be removed the two bolts you need to use for the puller are 5/16 NC thread.
