Lawrie, The only hub puller for that job is a KRW puller, and they do not distort. Your hub, if it is loose from the axle but still won't come off, may be held in place by the shoes hanging up on...

Re: '40 Rear end axle help

Mig, Those (folks that know) should have also examined the keyways on those tapers for cracks that are present in a large percentage of used axles. They should also have given you the good news that...
