We can do that. Just bring it with you to the Classic and I'll bring a
puller. I'll probably swap out the whole steering column with one from a
'74+ later since I like the splined shaft better than the press-on. This
one looks like it was destroyed by a PO trying to beat it off with a
hammer. The splined shaft wheels don't take much more than a little
wiggling and a good whack with the heel of your hand to remove.

I still wish Grant made an adapter for Bay buses. I would save my money and
spend the $400 or so on a nice 17.5" Grant truck wheel.
