Welcome to GT TALK. The guys here are some of the greatest on the net. The trick for getting a steering wheel off a cub is this. Carefully pry the center cap off the steering wheel and then take the nut off. It should be a thin nut so you need to get yourself a nut that is the regular thickness as well as a bolt about 2-3 inches long. The nut is a fine thread and I believe 3/4 inch. Thread the thick nut on the steering column halfway and then thread the bolt down into the nut and tighten it down against the steering column shaft. The next part may be harder without the fenders on. Sit yourself down on the seat with your feet on the footrest's and your knees under the steering wheel and push up on it from the bottom. Now get yourself a good sized short handle sledge and while pushing up with your knees on the bottom of the wheel give the bolt a couple good whacks. It should pop after a few good hits. I have used this method on all of my steering wheels and it has never failed me yet. The great advantage to it is its fairly easy and it causes no damage to the wheel or steering column and when done right should have the wheel off in ten minutes or less. Good luck.

On the pics, before you upload, open them on the computer and rotate to proper view, then save. We'll have you posting pics all over before long. :rofl2: Good luck with your tractor.

thanks. the center cap on my steering whel is in perfect shape, thats why i didnt want to try to remove it. i'll try taking it apart tonight. all the sheet metal(except the hood, i'm going to scuff it) is getting blasted as we speak.
