That will be an almost impossible task without busting the masonite from around the center hub. I believe on all these models, the masonite extends below the metal hub on it's underside, so if you get a bearing separater under it to pull by, it pops the masonite. If the masonite breaks, which it surely will, then use a 2 bolt puller in conjunction with a bearing separater (turned upside down), apply some heat on the hub & pull.

Like Daniel said, There is just no way around this. If it is rusted on (which they always are) 99% of the time it will break the masonite. my Ford and Jacs have the same problem. Good luck!

Not all that familiar with the Bush Hogs. Do they have a tapered spline holding the wheel on the steering box like a Ross steering box does? If so you could try the trick I use on my Cubs.

Wish they were taper spline! These are keyed like Sears SS are, and man oh man do they come off HARD!

Keyed straight spline, that is definately "NO FUN". Hate working on equipment with them on drivelines where you can be more brutal than on a steering wheel. They can be "challenging" sometimes.
