IF you decide to buy rather than rent then be sure and coat the threads with anti seize, messy but makes them last forever. Using dry will eventually gall them.

I want to thank you all for your replies and suggestions. I RRREEEEAAAAALLLYYY screwed up on my original post. I broke the steering wheel while using my MAC puller (a two claw type that goes under the steering wheel to pry it up). I wanted to fashion a puller that I could use the two 7/16x 18 bolts w/o having to buy one. And if I had to buy one (I'm a cheapskate), didn't want to pay $35-40 for it. BTW, borrowed a puller from a friend and got the wheel off yesterday. Also anybody want to try their hand at refurbishing a '54-'55.1 steering wheel (yes I know, this should be in the "FREEBIES")? Have a new steering wheel on it's way. So again, THANK YOU ALL for your suggestions and offers and I'm sorry for wasting your time. A HUUUUGGGGEEEE misunderstanding on my part.

Just to clarify for future readers, the size of the bolts used to pull the stock wheel are 5/16”-18. Your wheel many have been altered or maybe just a typo!
