Shown below are four pictures which tell the story of an easy way to pull a Spridget Rear Hub.
First, be sure the car is secure on jackstands. Drain the oil from the dif if you wish. Remove the wheel and axle.
Remove the large retaining nut. Remember one side has reverse threads.
The first picture shows the tools you will need: a 5″ capacity two jaw puller, a proper size wrench to turn the puller screw, and a distributor drive from an “A” series engine. This is the offset slotted shaft seen when you remove the distributor.
The second picture shows the distributor drive inserted into the end of the axle housing with the offset slot visible. The large end is very slightly smaller in diameter than the axle housing so it provides a ready stop for the support the puller.
The third picture shows the puller on the axle/hub assembly. Be sure to get the ends of the puller jaws firmly set behind the large part of the hub so it can securely pull on the hub. Also be sure to get the end of the puller screw in the hole of the distributor drive. Now begin to turn the puller screw. It may be hard to turn if the hub has not been off in a long time. It will “pop” free and will be easy to turn until the hub is removed.
The fourth picture shows the completed work.
Imbedded in the fourth picture Is another hint: use empty quart or larger oil containers as drain pans to catch the drips when you first remove the axle.
