I used info from Dan Walter’s perfect hub puller to make mine.
Just plate steel with four holes and the fitting for the slide-hammer welded
to the center. That with some bolt, washers and coupling nuts. The hubs
came off easily requiring 40 ft/lbs on one side and 50 ft/lbs on the other.
I then used the MONGO slide-hammer to pop the axles out.
I checked for end play before I pulled the axles and there was 0 on both
sides. There was a .030 shim on one side and a .010 on the other. So, I
needed shims. There are no shims available in Leavenworth, KS so I made
I bought some .030 steel and .010 tin at the locale hardware store.
Question for you guys who know, how many shims and what thickness do you
have on your car? I hope I made enough. I also had to make the paper
gaskets which was quite easy after cutting the metal ones.
Have some parts painting to do today and then Monday I will have the old
bearing removed and the new one pressed on.
I assume this is the original engine. My Tiger was originally a LHD now converted to RHD and the decal is located on the what is now the right hand rocker cover to the front.
