Which hub puller for a slide hammer?
Posted 01 December 2012 - 05:39 PM
My plan is to use a piece of 3/4" black iron pipe, with a cap on one end with a hole drilled to fit a bolt that will attach to the hub puller. Then on the black iron pipe I can put whatever weight I want, standard 'home' barbell weights fit perfectly on a 3/4" pipe. So I can put 5 lb, 10lb, 25lb, whatever I want on there.
Then screw a pipe flange on the other end for the weights to slam against.
I did something like this with a slide hammer, but it was a small slide hammer and it ripped the threads right off the end of the slide hammer. But - it did pull the hub out no problem.
