184 lowboy steering wheel

Postby glmassar » Mon May 21, 2012 1:49 pm

I originally had 184 pto quit. I thank all who responded to that.
I have determined that I have a short going from switch to the clutch on the tractor.
I need to know how to take the steering wheel off. I removed the nut but am
unsure if the wheel pops off or it screws off. I need to get to wiring underneath.
I did hot wire to the pto and it works fine. I should have done this first.
Any help would be appreciated. I did put on a new pto switch and replaced fuse even though
it looked ok.

George, you can try sitting on the tractor with your knees pushing up real hard on the wheel while smacking it upwards with your hands, or a wheel puller. I have a 3 point puller that fits perfectly through the center which is the way I have to do it 95% of the time. I use anti-sieze when I reassemble, but I still usally need a puller.

If it's layed out like a 185, you can aslo remove the gas tank and get easy access to everything underneath the dash. Tank is easy to take off, just don't puncture the radiator hose with the tanks front mounting ear.

Be careful with a puller, the skirt on the steering wheel is just plastic. I remove the wheel by taking off the nut, getting a nut and bolt the same size, I don't remember right now what the thread size is, screw the new thicker nut 1/2 way on the steering shaft. Screw the bolt into the nut very tight. The bolt is now tight against the end of the steering shaft and will prevent damage to the shaft or the threads. Sit on the seat, use your knees to lift on the steering wheel, hit the head of the bolt with a hammer several times and the wheel will pop loose, remove the nut and continue pulling and rocking the wheel until it comes off the shaft.

My puller is small enough that the legs fit inside the hub of the steering wheel. I screw the bolt almost all the way on to protect the threads and use a small piece of flat stock between the puller and the steering wheel nut.

I always get it off one way or another, but it usally is a pain.
