Re: Cinkel Steering Wheel Removal
With the puller on and tight, give the end of the threaded puller shaft a short sharp shot with a small 5 lb sledge. Metal on metal and shock it to break the corrosion free. Don't beat on it...And or, your steering shaft looks long enough and if there are no plastic parts to damage, you can try to heat and cool it several times. This also is known to break the corrosion free. You can also try that with the puller on and tight. And try cooling with cold water after heating.
And or, soak with 50/50 mix of ATF and acetone as penetrating oil.
