Yes there was.  The puller had two L-shaped legs that went in through the oval holes in the steering wheel hub.  You turn them a quarter turn to engage behind the hub, and then pull the steering wheel off.

Grinding most of the head off hex-head bolts works, sort-of, but damages the steering wheel.  It's best to weld more material onto the bolt head so the bottom of the "L" only just fits through the oval slots.

Remember: if your Holden's not leaking oil, it doesn't have any.
