Want to remove hood but should remove steering wheel. Don't have proper puller. Lots of other pullers. Is there a homemade
one some one has plans for or how to rig a 3 jaw puller to make it work.

I am not sure what you are asking. You don't need to pull the steering wheel to remove the hood but you should get a helper to help guide and lift it. You should also drain the gas to reduce the weight and don't forget to remove the fuel line. I hope this helps. I was able to pull the steering wheel from my 8n with a 3 jaw puller (if I remember correctly) after soaking with PB Blaster.

"You don't need to pull the steering wheel to remove the hood"

to my recollection, it's not a big deal when you're removing the hood, but it sure would help a lot when you're putting it back on.

See tips 12 & 73.

I know for a fact that you do not need to remove the steering wheel to get the hood off on an 8N.

I'm pretty sure you do need to remove it on a 2 & 9N.....just wait a minute and someone who has done it lately will answer the question.

I used a 3 jaw puller with the jaws removed.
Be careful not to damage the shaft. You will likely need a new nut.
This picture is of a Jubilee, but it works the same.

I use the same method a Royse. Just take the gear puller arms off a bolt direct. Because the 9n/2n steering column sits a bit lower than the 8n it is more difficult to remove the hood. It can be done with two people but it's a lot easier with the steering wheel removed.

I too was able to remove the steering wheel from my old 2n by sharpening the jaws of a small, 3 prong puller.
