Rear hub pullers

Rear Hub Pullers

I read in a recent Digest (might have been E-Type) that John Farrell sold
the Churchill Hub Pullers.  The last time I checked with him he had sold
out and did not know if he was going to have another batch made up.  I have
a call in to him to check it out.  If he is out, maybe we could stir up
some interest in getting another run as I personally would prefer Churchill
over Rube Goldberg!  The Jaguar club in England appears to have made up a
different hub puller set up which incorporates a conventional lug type hub
puller with a couple of heavy duty thereaded rings which screw onto the
hubs etc.  Does anyone know if these "threaded rings" can be purchased?
thanks for the help. I really enjoy the Digest and it is interesting to
note that the XK group has a slightly  different personality than the crowd
on the E-Type Digest.    As a subscriber to both I can see a
difference.....the E-Type folks are much more long winded as their Digest
generates three times the banter and they also have a habit oif getting
side-tracked.  We have been debating Rain-X for a week or so and the
Clinton jokes have been woven in as well! - Ken Oilschlager

Ken: Don't be dissin my hero, Rube! While am fortunate to have had a proper
hub puller for many years now, I turned to "Rube" in the past and he did
not let me down. By fabricating a distance piece of soft mat'l (copper or
aluminium) to place between the axle end and extending a bit beyond the hub
threads, a stock wing nut has worked to break a not too stubborn hub off
its taper. Naturally, the greater diameter of the distance piece the better
to keep it from push through the soft brass of the spinner (use an old
spinner).       Be prepared to replace the seal should heat be applied. -
