I honestly have no clue, but I think there is two bolts that hold the column to the frame.  Check where the steering shaft goes thru the frame.

not too familiar with wodebody's however- most steering wheels are generic. theres a bolt in the center, covered by a piece of plastic. just pop the center piece out and take off the nut. the wheel SHOULD come off. if its rusted on, soak the piss out of it with PB blaster, and it THAT dont work, use Redneckcomputergeek's candle wax trick. look around the sides of the wheel if neither of those work, some wheels set screws too

I had the same problem with my JD l120 lawn mower.

What I did to take the steering wheel was took a sledge hammer and started beating the bottom of the
steering wheel till it finally came off..And if that don't work try cutting it off or take a tourch and melt it off.

Take pics of it.

Red, to remove the wheels off my MTDs I just found a bolt in the same thread but longer, threaded it in all the way, and while holding the wheel hit the bolt with a hammer. Freed up and came off.

Should be just a normal 5/16 bolt.

Murray put a clip on atot of widebody. Look under the bottom of the wheel there should be a slot where there is a wire style C clip holding the wheel to the shaft pull it out and wheel should slide off

Once you get the nut or clip you can try tapping it off with a rubber mallet
