In servicing many older automotive vehicles, it can be very difficult to remove the wheel hub from the axle housing. It is especially difficult to remove hubs which have suffered burnt bearings, as these bearings frequently weld themselves to the axle housing. The problem is especially acute on vehicles whose hubs have not been removed for a long period of time and whose bearings tend to cling to the axle housing. Trying to remove the hub can be very difficult for most car enthusiasts, since a lot of force is usually needed to free up the hub from the axle.

To solve this problem, Vintage Precision has developed the VP Rear Hub Puller, an enhanced version of the K.R. Wilson ABV-156 rear hub puller, which will take your worries of ruining your axle away for good.

Vintage Precision's Rear Hub Puller will only work on grooved design hubs and not on protruding ring style hubs.

Our VP Rear Hub Puller is manufactured in our CNC machine shop in Benicia, CA. It consists of two steel half-shells which are machined with a 70,000 PSI yield strength, a thrust nut machined from aircraft steel with a 100,000 PSI yield strength, and a thrust bolt, which is a grade 8 fastener and has a full inch of thread engagement. The outside cover is made from stainless steel tubing, which reduces the weight and size of the assembly noticeably, without sacrificing strength. The finished assembly is 2.5" in diameter and approximately 4" long and comes in a storage container, 3" OD x 6.8" long, 4.5 Lbs total weight.

Aside from superior materials being used, the puller is designed to apply the thrust load into the threads of the axle past the cotter pin hole, not the end of the axle. With some pullers, it is possible to crush the axle shaft end from applying heavy loads to brake the hub free. If this happens, the threads are often deformed so the castle nut will not install properly and the cotter pin hole will usually get crushed, making it difficult to insert the correct cotter pin.
