No, it takes a puller. One can make one pretty easy.

You can fix this by either re-indexing your steering wheel as you are doing or adjust the drag link that goes between the steering box and the steering center arm.

I'd probably look at your steering linkage and tierods then...
Maybe even tell us what kind of vehicle it is....and what kind of steering is in it.
Pics are always nice.

puller

I cobbled one up but for other pullers I have found the local parts store will lend me one for a deposit and 100 percent refund on return---good deal

bsmith comes through again! awesome. Well off to get a puller! :) I'm trying to check and see why my blinkers aren't working. I figured maybe there is some rust or something up in the blinker switch.

i got a 72 fj40 btw.

Harbor freight sells a pretty cheap puller. I too would check the input link to the steering box. You can get a lot of steering wheel adjustment from it. Just make sure your front wheels are really in line with the rear then adjust the wheel to straight.
