The thing is bloody brand new, never seen water- that is what is so annoying!!!!

Cheers for all your help, as i said i will try a hub puller and let you know how i get on.

The shaft is tapered, so it gets pretty well locked on with normal tightening of the nut.

I had a similar issue and posted solution on a previous thread. Basically put the hub puller on it tightening it up and good doses of WD40 or other penetration oil, over a period of a few days with the occasional shock and making sue the puller was as tight as I could. one morning went to check it and found it off.
have patience
good luck
James

I leathered hell out of mine with a big hammer, it came off but I shagged the shaft as the nut went down it stripping the threads!
I bought a new unit in the end.

Anyone need a steering wheel for free?

Thanks again for the advice.

once you have the puller on tight ....if it doesnt go give the puller a few shocks with the hammer and spray the shaft with wd and leave for 1/2 hr .....doesnt need to move much to get it off the taper ....but can be a bas*** ....we used to take huge washing machine drums off like that ....never got one that was easy

good luck

It's off

Finally got the it off however because the claws of the puller wouldn't reach the metal hub it literally pulled the plastic wheel clean off the hub.

I have managed to put it back together although the steering wheel base is a bit messed up.

Any suggestions how i can tidy it up....some sort of sleeve or tape maybe?

Hopefully i see no reason to remove the wheel again apart from when the helm needs replacing but is it good practice to put some grease on the shaft, as is it not the woodruff key that prevents the wheel from spinning on the shaft?

I am probably wrong though
