Steering wheel puller?

Can anyone recommend the exact puller I need to pull the steering wheel off of my 87? I need to change out the switchkey. Don't feel confident trying to order it without asking. I'd probably end up with one that wouldn't work for one reason or another.

I don't know the "exact" wheel puller for a 1987 but I have used this from Harbor Freight to pull my '86 and several more from trucks in the '90s. Bolt-Type Wheel Puller Set https://www.harborfreight.com/bolt-t...set-62620.html

Re: Steering wheel puller?

Check out Harbor Freight 62841 $35.00.
https://www.harborfreight.com/steeri...set-62841.html

If you have a Harbor Freight in town go check out the 62841 puller kit. I have the same kit in a red box that HF sold as part 42031 that I really like.
HF is bad about using cheap cast iron in some tool kits but I think this kit is all steel parts.

Re: Steering wheel puller?

I think I actually have the puller but I always end up using my thumbs by myself. If I had a helper to remove the clip it would be a piece of cake with just my thumbs.
