Does anyone know a place to buy a hub puller?

Ok, in the process of trying to replace the wheel cylinders in my 54 dodge coronet, I have destroyed my hub puller. It was a cheapy from JC whitney.

What I had was a three armed puller that attached to the lugs, and had a threaded rod in the cener that pushes the axle. First I destroyed the threaded rod, replaced it then destroyed one of the cast arms...

Anyone know where I can get a good one?

Jim

Checked around napa has one for about $160, ouch....

JCwhitney has next level up from one I destroyed for about $60. However I would like to see the actual tool prior to sinking the cash on it...

I was thinking looking at tractor tool places or other sources.

I definately think this job calls for heat well bove my little propain tourch.

Cool

If you want to see the tool go to Sears, I've had several Craftsman pullers for years and they've been abused, or stop a Snap-On or Mac Tool truck and they'll sell you what you need. Just a warning, do not look at the other tools or carry a large amount of money with you!

Well I walked down to the local napa on Friday, manager's a friend of the family. He managed to get me the one off napa online that lists for $160, for $116.

Came in Saturday, it's one beefy tool, and I doubt I'll bend or damage this one. The center bolt's over 1" wide, and it comes with a striking anvil for turning the center finally a tool made to be hit with a hammer.

I have avoided the mac and snap on guys so far. I picked up some of my fathers old snap on stuff, and have not broke any of them. I also fear if I where to visit these devils I would come up quite a bit lighter in the wallet.


I have done horrible things to craftsman with just my bare hands..
I can strip a 1/4 inch with one arm. 3/8 usually takes bothe arms really cranking on it to strip the gears, and the 1/2" craftmen usually take a pipe
