Working on my MF 10, tearing it apart to restore. That steering wheel was not going to move, soaked with oil over about 3 weeks used a few different pullers i have no way. So i purchased a bearing separator puller from princes auto, about 5 mins setting it in place POP off it came, no damage to anything. It,s nice to see some things really work out. Cost was 39.99 plus 13% for the tax man but now we have it.We got a few more to pull off anyway so they should also come off, it really makes a differance when you have the right TOOLS.

Glad to hear you were able to get it off. Steering wheels seem to always be a PITA

I've been telling my wife that for YEARS! She just thinks I like tools...wait, I do like tools, but that's beside the point! LOL

They can be a misery to remove. I had trouble with the wheel on my MF8 as well. I soaked it for a while and used a large 2 arm pulley puller that I have. I have several sets of arms for it and used the widest ones - about an inch and a half wide with a radiused edge. These went in under the wheel centre and pulled against the metal hub. It still took a lot of force to remove it. One thing to watch out for. My wheel was bent at the rim. After it sat apart for a while the centre section where the MF logo decal goes became oval, probably due to the stress from the bend. It will probably give me grief when it comes time to reassemble it.
