    Steering wheel puller

    Hi guys, have any of you had to resort to a puller to remove a stuck moto-lita steering wheel? It's just not centered..
    Local garage and I have tried but the bugger just won't move. All their pullers don't fit!!!
    Seeing if I can buy something before either making one or undoing the ujs and realigning.
    Cheers Clive

    If you undo the UJs, don't forget to keep them all 'in time' with each other! Which means you'd likely have to split it at the rack..

    Yes. Used a standard 150mm puller but needed to add an extension to the centre screw to enable it to reach the splined shaft. Fiddly to setup but then came of easily when correctly aligned.

    When you eventually get it off, I suggest you don't refit it dry - apply some copper grease to the tapered section. That is where it's getting stuck.

    you probably know this already Clive, but leave the nut on a few turns.... saves getting spoke marks on your face when it finally pops free!

    Two very good points, copper grease and most importantly leave the nut on!!!! A couple of comments on other forums discuss dentists bills and concussion.
