Wedge a 2x4 tightly between the collar of the steering wheel and a tree.   Punch the rollpin out toward the 2x4.

After the roll pin is out, the steering wheel might not be easy either.

 

A real PITA for sure!   :roll:

Make sure you soak it good for a couple of days with PB Blaster. Also use a Roll Pin Punch. you find it will stay on the pin a lot easier and will allow for a more solid blow from your hammer.

If you do a search, you will find that this has been a much discussed problem with some very creative answers. What's the model number tractor we are talking about?

If you have access to a 20-ton shop press, wiggle the steering wheel shaft into it and apply pressure to the shaft. Be prepared for a loud BANG when the roll pin shears off. That roll pin is old, hard, rusty, and brittle...all of which contribute to the BANG you'll hear. I've done this successfully several times, without damaging the s/wheel. If you have to sacrifice the alum dash housing, they are available y here or on ebay.

Soak it good with PB blast for several days. Then what ever you do will be easier! :ychain:
