I have a different idea! Pass on your boat to someone else and then buy a Cruiser! Don't need a puller to take off the wheel of a Connie!! LOL! Best of luck to you!

I had the same problem with my 56 Continental. If it is the dodge steering wheel with a horn ring push down on the center cap and turn it counter clockwise. It has three tin tabs that hold it on. Once it is removed you should be able to remove the retaining nut and use a steering wheel puller. O'Reilly's Auto parts probably has one for rent. If you want to call me feel free, 816-810-4262, Gary
