One could use the marine system for removing propellers, drill a small hole in the half shaft of a length to be half way into the taper, then cross drill into the longitudinal hole, tap a thread into the longitudinal hole to fit a hydraulic union. To remove the hub next time pump oil or grease into the hole to between 5000 to 10000psi using an Enerpac and it should fall off. Drill size is 2-3mm

Hi Graham,
The wonderful tool is a copy of the original Churchill JD-1 tool, "Martin Robey Ltd "has them listed part no. 204-011 ---- £254.17. I am trying to get one made!. regards Brian
As stated earlier in the thread I have a five legged hydraulic puller which does the job admirably.

I'm offering it for sale for £50.00 plus p&p which is a considerable saving on what you propose.
