Rear hub puller

Does anyone living in south western Ontario have a rear hub puller
that I can borrow. I need to strip both the left & right hubs.

Keith,

If you're in Windsor, I'm only 3 hours away in central Ohio. I don't
really want to ship them anywhere, but you're welcome to use them here.

So make your own. Since it is a 69 S4 SE it should be knock off, which means
a tool to remove the hubs is easy to make.

Remove or just loosen the axle nut. Get a couple of nuts to screw onto the
axle shaft so the end nut is just proud of the axle stub. Then take some
thick washers about the inner diameter of the knock off and put them in the
knock off nut. Now screw the knock off nut on so it pushes against the nuts
through the washers. This will apply uniform pressure to all the threads.
Tighten the knock off until the hub comes loose. This was shown to me by an
Elan racer and has worked fine. Now if I can just get the time to use it
again this week so I can get the bad bearing replaced.

You can also get a short piece of tube to use instead of the nuts. I think
1/2" or possibly 3/4 black gas pipe will work.

I have a diagram with I think dimensions on that any engineering company
could make.
Give me a few hours and I'll get it from the garage and scan it. I'll
upload it to the gallery if the quality is good enough.
