    loosen the nut holding the wheel but dont remove completely.
    stack washers over horn button switch.
    and go to town!

    Kudos to you, I can honestly say I've never seen it done that way. Wish I had thought of that in highschool right before I broke my nose pulling one off by hand.

    a regular steering wheel puller doesnt work on these old ones.
    there are no holes to thread anything into.
