    This is a 1948 rear axle I bought for the hydraulic brake backing plates. I thought it would get some laughs. Now I have to figure out how to get the hubs off. Any suggestions? IMG_20201011_122537793.jpg IMG_20201011_122537793.jpg IMG_20201011_122546786_HDR.jpg

    Early variable speed drive?

    Need the correct hub puller unless you want to roach the hubs/drums.

    It would help if you listed at least your general location in your profile. That way someone near you with the correct puller might be able to help you out. If you're in inland SoCal I've got the correct puller as well as one of the not correct ones I could lend you a hand with.

    Normally those pulleys are held on with a set screw or a nut on the shaft. my guess is that the nut has been removed and a regular gear puller or pulley puller will take it off. Then you need the Correct Ford hub puller.

    Hi. Looks like it's threaded on. Try unscrew it.

    Spray some Kroil on that pulley. It will fall off magically overnight.....:rolleyes:

    It's difficult to tell how it is affixed to the axle. If it was just pounded on there with a BFH, you may be able to heat the pulley up and use a BFH to knock it off. Try to focus the heat on the pulley only.

    Sorry I need to finish my post. The picture is of a pair of washers and a cotter pin the previous owner had used to hold the hub on. No nut! I had removed the cotter pin before. Taking the picture. I will heat the hub to remove it.
