69 camaro steeringwheel

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I just want to say, I really enjoy all the information here, alot of good information posted. Now my question. Is there any another way to pull the steeringwheel off to replace, other than buying the puller? Thanks.

Re: 69 camaro steeringwheel

Borrow a puller if you have to. You stand a good chance of damaging the upper column bearings if you beat on the steering wheel and/or hub to get if off. It is really a tight secure connection.

BTW, make sure that you have the puller square to the steering column shaft and hub when you start to pull it off. Otherwise, you can break the bolt(s) that you threaded into the hub. (Don't ask me how I know!)

You can rent a puller for free from your local Autozone with a cheap deposit, like 15 bucks.

Get a puller
If cant. put a longis bolt in each of the puller holes
between these a peice of plate that has holes that the bolts go thru. between the plate and steering shaft put another bolt and nut, the head of the bolt on the shaft and the nut at the end of the bolt thread under the plate.
Carfully unwind the nut holding the bolt head with a ring spanner. this will lift the steering wheel enough to pop it free. Its best to have a helper to hold things straight

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
