Tried search in both IE and FF and it worked in neither so here goes.
If you do not have a hub removal tool, what trick can be used to remove the rear hubs?
Try loosening the nut a little and drive it around the block a few times.
(What are IE And FF?)
Before I had a hub removal tool, I would find a blunt piece of iron and catch the edge of the hub and tap on it while turning the wheel around. I tried prying a screwdriver between the hub and axle, I would pound on the lower parts of the wooden spokes, all poor ways of doing things, but they did work. You can sure get damage too!
Google is your friend in this need.
Does this one help?
If not, there are other options.
Your wire wheel hubs are easily removed with any good 2-jaw or 3-jaw gear puller, most can be had for less than $50.
That flange around the wire wheel hub is where you place the puller arms.
Ford made a special 2-jaw puller, but any good one, like Sears Craftsman 2-jaw has worked.
If it's a wire wheel hub then go to Autozone or Advance Auto and get a pitman arm puller. Then grind off the teeth on the inside to fit the hub behind the nose and presto! You're in business. (Also driving with the nut loose works too)
For wire wheel hubs, I just use a bearing puller on mine. Works well.
To see what I consider one of the best gear puller designs I've ever seen ("mho") google Posi Lock Gear Puller. The cage which tightens down over the jaws and keeps them from spreading is the real "plus" here! I bought mine at Sears, but I'm not sure that the Sears tool dept always stocks them.
John,....this is the one I have if you're still looking to borrow a puller,.....let me know,.....harold
Henry... "IE" is Internet Explorer, and "FF" is Firefox. Both are browsers, not search engines per se. Like Dave Dufault said, Google is your best friend. Ask.com is okay, but frankly, if Google doesn't have it, you don't need it!
Wood wheels. A couple of the club members have pullers so that is where I am going today.
Sincerely appreciate everyone's input.
Ah ha! Thanks Tim. I use IE, FF and Google all the time. I just don't recall hearing the browsers referred to by the acronym.
I have had troubles with getting these wire wheels hubs off of the frame I bought but picked up a puller that looks like the one Seth has a pic of at the flea market for like $4. It worked for me. I didnt have the ability to drive it around the block because she is in pieces still. Tim
There are those 3 jaw hub pullers also. Remember to run a nut down even with the end of your axle to help prevent mushrooming the end. (for anyone new reading this)
I am a new comer to the model T world i was always model A guy and still own and love them but these T models have to be preserved and driven,so that's my story.
