Somehow I think I bent (warped) the steeling wheel, and I would like to have it straightened.  I got the cap off, and then there is a nut, I got the nut off, but nothing.  I cant tell if there is a retaining ring, or snap clip or not that needs removed.  Someone suggested beating on the nut and it should pop lose.  So Before I try that, I thought I would ask, and see if there is something simpler.  TIA

(it is one of those pretty big (2'?) in diameter wheels with wood on the outside)

You put the center bolt (with the point) in the center of the bolt (that you removed the nut from), then adjust the grabbers around the stainless ring, then using a wrench turn the center bolt.

Basically like this:

Yep!Thanks again!  I'll stick it on there and try and not worry about the little thing I think is some sort of keyway.

The piece of metal, "the key" stays in the square groove in the shaft and wheel hub. I replaced my wheel with a new one, and the new wheel came with a new key. Make sure you don't drop and/or lose the key. It will come right out no problem with the puller.
