Default What is this puller part for ???

I have my dads Blue Point puller and recently I found a photo of the same
one on ebay. I don't have the oval piece in the center of the photo.

Can someone, that has one, tell me what that piece is for ???

The puller is used to remove rear drums and hub from tapered axle shafts. I didn't read the compete thread . I dont know what the other part is. Tried to delete but wouldn't take.

NOT the one to use on Early Fords with Tapered Axles, K.R. Wilos or equal type. JMHO KX

Drum & hub puller sets may still be available from Snap On but I haven't ever had a need for one. They can also be used to pull hubs where a bearing has failed. It looks to be relatively complete less the metal box.

There may be some destructions out there somewhere for that set.

The way that puller is made, the puller arms can be set up several ways. No pins or bolts are used to hold the arms in place. There may be some applications where that clamping tool is required to hold the arms in place. It would likely be when there are only two arms in installed. Other than that, I don't really know what else it could be for.

If the puller is used on a wide five application, the oval piece is to hold the arms against the hub so they don't slip off... That's a very nice and complete set....

That's a nice complete appearing set for sure. Use extreme caution when using it on
Ford rear drums. The puller can easily exert enough power to permanently deform/bend
a drum.

I agree with Charlie on this. Ford banjo type drums should be pulled utilizing the groove in the nose of the hub like the KR Wilson tool was designed to do. The tapered fit and the torque of the nut along with corrosion and other factors makes them too tight to pull from the lug bolts

Just looking over your puzzle, I would guess that the oval and
the two pieces at the bottom of the picture work together, maybe
to fit in the center of the puller. (just guessing)

The two pieces at the bottom have a ridge of metal about 1/2"
down from the top, and I see a dimple in them right there too.

I would guess that the two pieces go together, then slip the
oval around the two, the ridge holds the oval in place, then
tighten the bolt down into the dimple, and that holds them
together as a clamp for something.
