Nice work Lionel!

Do you have a pic, or link for the gear puller? Sounds as if it could be very useful,

Cheers Charlie

G'day Charlie,

I was going to send you the link to the gear puller on eBay - where I bought it from. However, the link is a couple of kilometres long. So if you go to eBay and type in, "15 ton hydraulic gear puller" it should get you to the right place. It is a gear "hub" puller.

It has worked out to be a very worthwhile investment. If you have rusted on brake drums and everything has been loosened that supposedly frees them and nothing has worked - then the hydraulic gear hub puller makes short work of them. I used ratchet straps to catch the brake drum as the puller worked its magic.  Also, stand to the side when you are pumping the handle. The drums tend to come off really fast once they are loose.

Kind regards
Lionel
