Steering wheel puller

I am restoring a '73 VW Bus with a 1600 air cooled engine and a manual transmission. In '73 I was driving a '68 VW squareback so I am reliving my youth and will now have my Dead Head Van. The starter frose up and caused a short that fried the wires from the ignition switch to the fuse box so I am going to replace the wiring harness but before I start I would like to know if I can use a genaric steering wheel puller or do I need the VW spacific attachment. Thanks Allan H. Giesen San Diego California not San Diego Texas.

It's a shame our resident VW expert is not around to give you a definitive answer. I have no answer for you on this , but I will look at mine tonight and see if I can figure something out.

Hey...I got an answer from the expert!

How's that? And I will have to count that as one for me...

May you be praised. Thanks as I did not want to goof it up from the begining. I had a good buudy from my high school who was my car guy and he died to young at the age of 49.
