I bought one from Canley Classics.

Having said that I still could not get one of the hubs off with it so please let us know how you get on.

Also see my recent thread on oil seals.

When I used a hub puller I found that it pulled one of the wheel studs a bit more through the hub and as a result the hub puller was not flat against the hub and so was not getting a square pull. Once I retightened the nuts I managed to get the hub off.

I manged to remove the hub from my spare axle, but sadly just deformed the end of the original half's half, which I didn't realise until I removed the puller.

Leave the hub nut on, it will support the thread on the end of the half shaft.
