Hi, just wanted to introduce myself and hope that some of you veterans can help me out. I have a 1980 (11/79) Brat the I am trying to get the steering wheel of of and was wondering if it takes a puller or just remove the main nut and remove? I've been thinking of restoring it and looks like I have found the site to go to! I just came across another Brat (a 1978) at a junkyard that is mostly intact for $400. So I may be picking that one up as well. Any help would be great!

Welcome! Yeah, you found a great place for everything Subaru--great, helpful people here too.

If you put your question in the Older Generation Forum you'll get a lot more response.

I used to live in pocatello.about 7 years ago now I think.

regarding any question about your GEN 1 brat-the best forum would be the historic forum, seconded by the older gen forum because some stuff crosses over.

while a 1980 brat is technically older gen most of the powertrain belongs in historic-ie EA71,single range 4wd...
