I recently acquired two '59 David Bradley Suburban's. One is complete, the other is a parts tractor, less engine. My plan is to build one good Suburban using the best parts from each. Since the parts tractor has the best frame, and the complete tractor has the best steering wheel, I must remove both steering wheels. I'm starting with the parts tractor. Since the steering wheel is welded to the shaft, I have no choice but to remove the steering pinion gear under the frame. It's much easier said than done. After removing the roll pin, I tried everything I could think of, including heat and a drift punch, trying to catch the one side of the top edge that protrudes slightly more than the rest of the gear and also utilizing the roll pin hole as a place to place the drift punch at an angle. PB blaster was also used. Has anyone tried to remove this pinion gear with success? If so, I'd sure like to know how it was done. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have the tractor leaning up against the garage wall so I can get at it.
