Steering wheel puller for Jeeps CJ's. If you have ever removed(or tried to remove) a steering wheel from an old Jeep, you'll appreciate this little gem! This thing will pop the wheel loose with very little effort and NO BREAKAGE! Turns a wrestling match into a 5 minute walk in the park.

Price is $88.50 with free shipping in the continental US !!

EveryJeep restorer and Jeep club should have one of these!

Custom made, in my shop(in the U.S.A.), from 6061 aluminum and cold rolled steel with grade 8 bolts.

Includes a new, hard to find, nut to use instead of the steering wheel retaining nut, thus avoiding distorting the retaining nut.

More info: Cobra66@epix.net

No. This was designed to work on the CJ models that have no holes for a conventional steering wheel puller. A wagon or pickup wheel has two tapped holes for a conventional wheel puller.

I cannot tell from the picture - what protects the threads and horn contact button?

Bruce:
Very good question. Illustrated instuctions come with the puller, with emphasis on protecting the threads. The nut is taken off, horn button pushed out of the nut and the nut is screwed back on to about 1/8" from the steering wheel, then the puller disc pushes againt the nut. This is important to not only protect the threads but to prevent the wheel from possibly flying off the shaft with considerable force.

OK - I understand your process, but the nut is very thin at the horn button hole and is easily deformed when pressure is applied. I was able to beat mine back to near original, but it did damage it.
I've been told a spindle nut off certain older full size GM cars is correct thread, but have not confirmed it.
Use spindle nut and no worries of damaging the original nut.

Hey Bruce:
You are so right ! I looked at the nut on my 48 and it was distorted. I also looked for a 3/4 X20 nut online and Chevy truck spindle nuts will work. I'll order a bunch and include them with my pullers.
Thanks for the observation, are you looking for a consulting job?Big smile

Will the consulting fee fund my early retirement Clap 
 
Since this tool is usually only needed once by most Willys enthusiests, maybe you should consider a rental option, along with outright sales of it.  It looks to be a great solution to the PIA steering wheel removal.  I used a homemade maple wood one, and while it eventually worked, your puller would be superior.

YES. I am planning to bring a supply of these to the Picnic along with some other Willys "treasure".
One will be given away as a door prize, so plan to stay for the drawing!

Hey Wheelie:
I'm gonna' bring a steering column to demonstrate my puller. You'd better bring some extra cash because once you see this thing work, you won't be able to live without it !!!!!
