A few years ago I pulled the steering wheel off an Escort in a junk yard. I used a steering wheel puller I bought a few decades ago for use on my '56 Ford. It did not go well, the steering wheel puller was almost destroyed and I'm not sure it can be used on the '56 anymore. Now I want to pull the wheel on our parts car for our Pony. So what steering wheel puller pulls Escort steering wheels with the least amount effort?

I remove the center nut, then thread it back on a couple turns. Next, pull, twist and jerk like heck on that wheel and it usually pops loose in short order.

Just don't forget to put the nut on loosely before the mad flailing!

I've done that a number of times, breaking the steering column in the process. I must not know my own strength...
