Hi all. Wondering if anyone can enlighten me to the best way to remove the steering wheel on my '74 GTV 2000. Might be a novice question, but I am interested in learning best practices here...
Sounds like a bad idea, especially with a fragile Burman steering box.Alternatively a friend of mine uses an air hammer on the solid steel shaft and .....
He's been doing it this way for a long time, on lots of cars. Because of the high frequency and super-low displacement of the air hammer up top, down at the box, it is not an issue.Sounds like a bad idea, especially with a fragile Burman steering box.
