Yes, your steering wheel will be offset vis a vis the
position of the spokes.  You will have to insure that
the wheels are straight ahead and then note where the
spokes should be.

You will have to snap off the centre motif, undo a
large nut in the recess using a socket wrench, and
then lift up the steering wheel.  I have used a three
pronged pulley puller before and also the following
method most recently.  

I put the centre nut back on but close to the top of
the thread. I used a hammer to deal a sharp blow onto
the nut and top of threaded steering rod while pulling
upwards on the steering wheel with the other hand. 
Thing to prevent ........ the steering wheel suddenly
coming off and hitting you in the forehead 
:-(   Ouch.

With the steering wheel off, try to position the
groves in the steering wheel boss and on the steering
rod so that you achieve steering wheel symmetry.
