mixed lot early hub pullers

Mostly cars of the 1910s and 1920s, with a few cars of the early 1930s. They thread onto the hub in place of the threaded hubcap, then apply pressure via the screw, and a few careful whacks with a medium size hammer will hopefully knock the hub loose. You hope.

Care mist be taken. Too much pressure from the center screw has been known to pull the threads right off the hub! And too much whacking or too heavy a hammer has been known to destroy the end of the axle.

They don't work on some wire wheel hubs. And you MUST have the proper size and thread count hub puller for whatever car you are working on.

They are generally for cars with tapered rear axles, which hubs sometimes become quite stuck onto. Not for many cars with full floating rear axles.
