Does anyone know what size rear wheel puller is used for a 1928 Chev. wood wheel? A person in my area wants me to work on his car. He had someone work on the trans and did not know how to work on vintage autos. It is now locked up and I need to move it. It was a hot rod shop.
Leon, I may be wrong but before I went to the trouble of pulling the rear end I would take the top off the transmission and make sure the gears and forks were aligned to allow it to go into neutral?
I was going to do that also. The owner does not have a puller so if we have too I will remove the axle keys or put the rear on dollies to move it.
According to “The Filling Station” catalog at: https://www.fillingstation.com/catalog/flippingbook/index.html
That is not the Model T size rear axle nut which is: NUT Rear axle shaft retaining, 5/8 x 18 U.S.S.,
If the person(s) who did the work can tell you what they did (or how much they disassembled) the transmission, engine, etc. it may help you with your trouble shooting. Did they pull the transmission and take it apart or just try to adjust the clutch etc. Also did the car run and drive before it went to them or was the engine locked up when it was dropped off etc.?
Good luck and let us know what you find out.

I've got a puller roughed out and maybe the thread info.
Y'all could figure the thread size and tell me if you really wanted me to finish the forementioned roughed out and send it to you. I'd be willing to trade it or sell it.
The person he had work on it took the trans out to fix. Now it is locked up. I just want to move it to my house to find out what they did. The owner of the Chev just wants to get it from them as fast as we can. I have not been able to look it over yet. May take a week to get back to it. The owner of the shop is now in the hospital.
"The owner of the shop is now in the hospital." Kind of an extreme measure to take on someone who messed up a tranny.
PM me and I will give you contact info for a friend who has 1927, 1928 and 1929 Chevrolets and does his own mechanical work. I have pulled one 28 hub and it was 3/4-16 as I best remember. We used a knocker as that was all we had, but you really should use a puller because in that rear axle you are hammering on a ball bearing.
An illustrated parts list for the 28 can be downloaded from the web.
The owner of the car called me and told me the shop owner has some kind of heart problem.
