Make a

Studebaker Tapered Axle Drum Puller

Skybolt (SDC Forum), July 2011


All it takes is a front drum from any Studebaker and a large nut and bolt. The rest consists of pressing, hitting, bashing the studs out then use the inner part of the hub that came out when the studs were removed. Next is cutting off the stout that sticks out at the back and welding on the big nut at the front. Apart from making it look nice that's a matter of choice. Then one has a factory style five lug puller. I have use this style for over 30 and the first one my brother welded up that long ago. I made one 4 years ago and have used it many times with no problems.
