Steering wheel removal

Trying to remove a steering wheel on a 1960 F100. How do you pull the wheel with the horn wire in the middle of the shaft? Do you have to pull the horn wire all the way out of the column?

Thanks,

Yes, but it's pretty easy to remove and replace. You unplug the connector just outside of the steering box, just follow the wire until you find it. Pull it up through the column and remove the wheel. When you're done, just push it back down through.

The horn wire went back through on the second try. I was amazed. I don't know how anyone pulls a steering wheel that had been on 55 years without a puller!

Thanks,

If they try it will look like the one in my 57 with big pieces missing out of it.





Probably someone tried to pull this steering wheel with out said puller. Not a good outcome.

Prolly got pissed when they broke the steering wheel with the hammer and decided to hit the windshield in discussed. LOL. I haven't looked real close to see if that star is on the outside or the inside to tell ;you the truth. Just know I would like to come up with a good used windshield instead of having to buy a new one install it and then take it back out again but I will probably end up going that route.

The windshield looks bad. Hope you find an affordable replacement for it.
