This is going from bad to worse! After having to cut the rubber away on the wheel to get a grip on the metal hub, I proceed to pull the wheel apart with a gear puller. The heavy sleeve left on the shaft would not come off with the gear puller even with heat from a torch. I then thought about removing the gear on the bottom of the steering column and pulling the shaft out to take it somewhere to get it cut off. Not a good idea. The cotter pin was a bear, and the gear is on very tight. I have only budged it about far enough so now the pin hole does line up, but I'm stuck. Any ideas??
