    Probably a LOT depends on which tractor it is.

    If there is a nut,, loosen the nut slightly,,, not completely.
    With the threads protected, lift up on the wheel, with your thighs.

    HIT the protected nut,,, with a BIG hammer. The type of hit depends on the hammer used.

    I usually do it that way, sitting on the seat I place my thighs (close to my knees) under the steering wheel. Using a brass punch and a heavy hammer, I hit the steering shaft with a good lick. It usually comes loose the first hit, that's if the steering wheel hub is not too rusted to the shaft.
