Hi All,
Mine has some cracks .. is there anything I can use to fill or seal them WITHOUT pulling the it? Looks pretty difficult to do but .. why pull it if I don't have to.. Either way, any suggestions on semi-restoring; sealing the cracks and protecting it from the elements?

Pulling steering wheels is pretty easy. At least most of the time it is.......

Rent a steering wheel puller from your local auto parts store.

38 1.5 ton wheel is easy to pull,make a simple puller out of flat steel and bolts,or take a hacksaw blade to the cracks with it on the truck. Saw in there then fill,file and sand till its good enough,then paint. Use JB weld to fill.

I used PC-7 heavy duty 2-part epoxy on my steering wheel and it worked very well. It does not shrink and files/sands well.
