  1. thanks Bt doctor and cyclops2... i became encouraged by your 'just cut and drill the thing' attitude and took a 4" angle grinder with a diamond blade to the nut. Turns out that the damage the previous owner did by spinning the nut on the shaft was much worse than anything I could do with my oversized tools. Long story short I have freed the nut and freed the hub only to find a disfigured threaded area on the column shaft. Now will get tap and dye set to try to rectify the thread situation. 'JUST DO IT!" appreciate the help!
  2. I have an unusual challenge : I have a 2000 200 SSE [purchased used] I have already purchased a new hub that matches an aftermarket steering wheel, however when I went to make the simple swap out, I found that the center steering nut will not loosen, how might I remove the hub in this case. Note that the new steering wheel does not match the bolt size of the original hub. Removing the steering wheel itself is simple except one of the six original hex screws was seized, this is not really supposed to be a problem since I have a replacement hub... as far as the old hub, I want to put a little pressure on the hub outward with a puller and then try a removal of the seemingly stripped nylon jam nut but cant get enough movement up/outward on the [or what i assume to be the] spline shaft to nudge or encourage the nut to loosen. The center bolt on the steering hub just spins, i.e. will not loosen [note: nut either by design [i doubt it] or by previous error the nut will not remove the normal way]. It seems to have a nylon insert jam lock nut, the threads seem to be stripped as the nut will not loosen with a 3/4" socket and ratchet set.
