I had a piece of 3/8 threaded rod about 2 foot long just slid it in the open end and pecked at it with a hammer. Just make sure you hold onto the end the rod slides into or you will fight against yourself. Also make sure you have a soft surface under the part you will keep or you might damage the end that goes into the steering wheel hub.
Hold the Mustang lower shaft that you don't need in a vise. Use vice grips or similar with something to protect the shaft on the upper. If you have the steering wheel from the Mustang that works great also. You have to pull hard. You don't want to damage either end of the upper shaft. The upper end fits your steering wheel and the lower end goes through the bearing
