Figured I'd post a tip for removing the steering wheel on a JD LT 155 as I just did it last night.
Tip #1 Remove nut first before attempting to remove thru neck bolt
Tip# 2 Use a #3 phillips head screw driver to loosen the thru bolt
Tip#3 once thru bolt is loose use a thin long allan wrench to pop/push the pressure seated thru bolt out the other side (you can turn it with the screwdriver till the cows come home and it won't come out) you need to loosen it and push it out.
Hope it helps someone here. Now on to removing the steering column and the dreaded c-ring that holds it to the rack. You wouldn't believe how chewed up that thing is. :smile1:

Thanks for the tips and good luck getting the rest of it sorted out. On the older GT's (60's and 70's vintage) getting the steering wheel off is usually one of the biggest headaches you have. It took me a long time with a puller, penetrating oil and a bit of heat to get the wheel off of my 74 MF 8. Let us know how you make out with it and if you can some pictures of the tractor and parts would be nice for anyone following in your footsteps.
