Question about 1981 Ford Bronco
I have worked on this same problem on a 1985 F100 and I'm sure the steering system is very similar. Take off all the pretty stuff on the outside of the steering wheel (horn buttons or horn ring) then you should be faced with a 11/16th to 3/4th nut. remove that nut and get a steering wheel puller (you can rent those at most auto parts houses for about $20.00. there is no replacement for having the right tool for the right job!) There will be holes that the steering wheel for the puller to be put in to. After you attach the puller to the wheel, take the middle bolt on the puller and tighten it until it makes contact with the bold on the steering column that you took the nut off of. You might have to hold the puller while you tighten the puller. After it makes contact, keep tightening until you feel the steering wheel POP off. Please resist the urge to try and use a hammer to take the steering wheel off and not use a steering wheel puller because it will never work (don't ask me how I know this!)
I hope this helps and much good luck!
