Default Where can I get the correct puller for a C5's steering wheel?

My 3-arm pulley puller and generic steering wheel puller kit won't work. Looks like it needs some type of dual arm puller with hooked ends. Any advice would be appreciated.

I know Ed put A CF members wheel in for them. Maybe he will let you borrow it if he still has it?

I will be doing mine next as long as I can get a the horn to work!

Cool... I'll call them. Mario this is a good thread in the auto-x/RR section of CF about aftermarket steering wheels and horn switches etc. etc. etc.

Aftermarket steering wheels - Corvette Forum

You can make them work for sure... just wasnt' an issue for me. Some of the wheels have a provision for a button in the center and others will require a horn button that goes on a plate between the wheel/hub and sets the button to the side a bit.

OK.... I just searched on CF and looks like you need to have the right puller arms which are indeed J-hooks... KD tools 3510. Apparently NAPA has them... will check there after work today.

Ed had a ***** of a time getting mine off when he installed the DSV wheel. He ended up drilling and tapping the wheel and using a two bolt puller.
