Jim I sure hope you find one.
I need one also thinking if you get one I could rent it?
I’ve got one stuck on my pick up. Hope to see you at Marietta in a month.

A good three jaw has always worked for me. Strike the end after setting tension and they all come loose.

Just trying to Help,

I can't pull a picture over.

I modified a Pittman Arm Puller and it works great. They come in 2 sizes and you need the larger one. You will need to grind off about 1/4 inch of the fingers so it will fit on the hub. Don't think you will find a Model T puller. You would have better luck finding a 2 carat diamond for $10.

The Ford puller comes around now & then - there is also an aftermarket Model A hub puller that works. Consider the substantial weight of this puller, it clearly indicates that that axle nut needs to be drawn up TIGHT !

Tried a pitman arm puller, ruined it. Bought another and reinforced it by welding a heavy piece on it, sill opened up. My hub is really stuck.

Questions, is it the front or rear hub? Is the wheel off the hub or are you trying to remove the hub from the wheel? If it is the latter I suspect it’s the front hub. What happens over the years dirt & rust get into the space between the wheel & hub and packs it tight. I have had that experience. For that you can lay it front down on blocks and with 2 crow bars opposing each other rock the hub back and forth to wedge it out. As a side note I took a 3200 psi pressure washer and tried to hit between the wheel and hub to remove & soak any of the debris caught in there. I haven’t had an issue on the rear wheels.
