Re: [DML] Recommended Steering Wheel Puller?

7MM screws are hard to find, and 7MM threaded rod was even worse. 

After struggling with that 7 mm problem for a while and then 
stripping it out (my wheel had been loctited on) I determined that it 
made a bunch more sense just to tap the puller holes out to 1/4-20 
(it might have been 5/16"). Then the bolts in the commercial puller 
will fit, AND the threads are somewhat meatier than thos tiny 7 mm
