I want to remove the steering wheel from my Durant 60. Is there a special tool I need? Any help would be appreciated. I am also looking for a good bracket that would hold my cowl light on. It is for the left side (drivers side). I have the original but it had been broken at one time. Thanks.
Al, I remember that it was easy to pull the steering wheel from my 29 model 60. After I removed the retaining hardware, I just gave it a good tug and it came right off. Of course I may have been lucky.
Some of those steering wheels can be tight, for my early Durant I made a puller out of some odds and ends that I had laying around...What I used was a large nut that had a slightly larger I.D. than the steering column, then sawed an opening to form a horseshoe so that the nut would slip over the column, then I attached two opposing studs that when the unit was in place that the studs would clear the spokes and extend up past the threaded portion of the steering shaft, then I used the "strong back" part of a conventional puller to straddle the studs at the top end...I think that a similar horseshoe puller may be on the market or at least was 50 years ago...Hope this helps...Bill
