In an effort to avoid another mishap (as chronicled on OSO), I would use WD40 on the shaft & turn the wheel left, right, left, etc. then try to pull it off by hand. If hand pressure isn't enough, go to your local Autozone & borrow (free) their steering wheel puller.

BTW, you're going to need a 6-screw hub adapter in order to fit that Isotta knock-off on your 3/4" tapered shaft.

Good Luck!
Dan

Here's another idea-

Take about 80' of chain and secure one end to the wheel. Secure the other end to something solid- like the main support member of your home. Then, hook the boat's trailer to your truck. Start your truck, put it in gear and accelerate away at the highest possible speed. If your home is well built, it should only partially collapse. The asphalt scrapes on the bottom of the boat that happened when it was torn from the trailer should probably buff out. Now, attach a $6 puller to the hub and remove it.

If you're going to dick around, you might as well do it in a big way

That wheel ships from Hong Kong. Let me know wht it looks like (quality wise) if it ever arrives. Nice looking but seems awefully cheap!

Already got it. Took 4 days. Beautiful. I have bought quite a few Momos and Isottas for the other boats. I truthfully can't tell the difference.

Gino,

Simple fix. You will need a puller (3 jaw or 3 bolt if the hun has tapped holes in it). Attach the puller and snug the fine threaded center bolt. From snug give it at least one full turn but no more than two or you will hammer the threaded shaft. If the wheel hasn't popped off allready then take a medium hammer (yes you can do it) and give the center bolt a good wrap. Don't belt it, just a nice solid wack. That should knock it off the taper.

If this doesn't work just sawzall the helm out.
