Is there any tricks to removing the steering wheel? I can't get it off and I don't want to break it. Thanks for any help.

Don't know your particular machine, but make sure any roll pin(s) are removed. Use a small punch (smaller diameter than pin) to remove the roll pin.

Use lots of penetrating oil, drink a beer, then use more penetrating oil. Do this for a couple of hours then go to bed.

When you feel better (hopefully the penetrant has helped) and try again to remove the wheel.

 

If you don't drink, that is ok. The point is, USE PLENTY OF PENETRATION OIL AND LET IT SIT!

 

You may need a puller something like this:

I just went out and looked mine over. I don't think there is enough room for a bearing puller like the silver one in the above post. May have to improvise something under the wheel to pull on.

The wheel has a bit of a lip on the bottom. You may need some sort of spacer under there to push up with. Good luck with it. If you get something rigged, put some tension on it and snug it a little each day. You may come home from work and find it ready to pull.

You might need to loosen up things enough to get the bottom clamping halves to fit by the dash, but the tool above is definitely the one to use. Had the same issue with one I was working on as well.
