Steering Wheel Help

I have a 70 chevy that I need to get the sterring wheel plate off. The only problem is that is thought I knew how but I was wrong. The three bolt holes that are in the steering mount are stripped and I want to replace it. But how to I get if off. I am no even sure that the steering column is origional any help please. Auto Zone have me a puller for a retainer plate but it will not thread onto the center column bolt.

On most cars they are spring loaded for the column bearings. You can get someone to help you or buy a tool for about 5 bucks. You have to press down hard on the plate to overcome the spring pressure. Using a strong nail or old drill bit. Pry out the c clip. The plate will then come off.

Looks like a common.....everyday Grant Steering Wheel adapter.....to me.

I suggest a 3 ear harmonic balancer puller.......and a little penetrating oil first...

DEUCE.....

It should just pull off (with some force) after you remove the nut on the steering column (which it looks like you already did). If you can't get bolts to hold in it you will need to use a 2 or 3-jaw puller to get it off.

Then put on a factory steering wheel because those grant ones are POS's
