Are the 2 pieces on the underside against the column? They need to be tight against the column.... that puts the pull on the collar, NO?

First off, thanks for the help.....

My first pull attempt, I was right against the column "under" that collar. That seems to simply crush that collar, so this current pull (picture below), I have squeezed the bottom pieces so they have that collar tight and are up against the where the collar meets the flare out....

Almost like the previous owner either crossed the knurls and used a sledge hammer or maybe used lock tite

I will give it a few more hours and it is almost noon here :)

In the pic you posted it looks like the piece under the wheel is slightly bent around the column? Is it pinching the column? Or pre-bent? If it is, that could be offering extra resistance to pulling the wheel up?

Aren't pictures worth 2000 words

The piece on bottom did bend a bit as I squeezed it around the collar.

Unless I am missing something, I _think_ I am applying a good amount of pull.

Enough force that the plastic collar that holds the metal knurled collar has slid 1/8+ inch and the metal collar (knurled) has not moved. I assume they are molded together....

Pictures do help, as my ability to describe is weak! The top of that plastic collar and the metal collar were flush when I started.

Im not gonna say I haven't had some hard ones to take off, but if it takes me more than 10 minutes to get one off, its because I stopped to drink a soda.

Thanks. This is my FIRST one (0 for 1), so there is no reason for me to believe I am not doing something wrong at this point

I had to stop yesterday as we needed the cart, so the streering wheel sits there mocking me. I thought I even heard it calling me last night from the garage like a bad Steven King movie.....

I appreciate the feedback, and will keep trying. I bet the second one is easier!

Every story needs an end. After Scotty's inspirational speech, I decided to man up <pause for effect> and send it to a professional

He did get the wheel off, but without the aluminum collar. This is what I was seeing when applying the puller last week. The aluminum collar busted when he finally got that off.

I feel somewhat better that it was a b*tch to get off, but now I need to get a wheel....

I need a golf cart junk yard local to The Villages, FL

Thanks all for the tips, I hope you enjoyed my pain
