How do you get the steering wheel off an old CJ5 Jeep? I have a '74 CJ5 that I want to put a new steering wheel on. I have a wheel puller but it doesn't work on steering wheels this old. I've tried to find out a method for getting the wheel off when there are no holes in the steering wheel to screw into. But I'm stuck and so far nobody seems to know how to take off the old steering wheels. So I thought I would give it a shot here. Anyone know how you get the steering wheel of an old Jeep when a conventional wheel puller doesn't work? Oh, and I've already tried the rubber mallet to the back of the wheel method. That wouldn't do it either.
