Incase you are looking for a drum puller for the tappered axle. Auto Zone carries it under RENTAL TOOL number 27033 "FWD Hub Puller". It is the same as the RWD puller. The price is $25.00 and is listed as thier standard supply for Rental tools. It is for a 3.75" and 4.25" Bolt pattern I believe. The box it came is says 3.75-4.25, so it's an assumption.

Yes I bought it. Yes I used it. My drivers side hub popped off with out issues. The passanger side hub was Very, Very rusty. I installed the puller and applied force to the screw. Using a 5 pound sledge hammer gave the screw a couple wacks and it popped right off. Job Done.
FYI, I looked at Checker and NAPA both looking for a "Rear Drum" puller but they did not carry them. I have not gone back to check if they list it as a FWD puller and maybe that is why they didn't even know they had it.

Back where I come from, that's also known as a steering wheel puller. :D

Well I guess if it's built like a steering wheel puller, that will be the last time Tim will be using it without blowing it to bits! [:0]

For a Studebaker, you should be looking for a hub puller, not a drum puller.

I bought one of these, don't remember what the shipping was, but the puller worked a treat.

Second one down, not professional, must be the amateur one.

Got my hub puller from Star and Stripes Tool (sastool.com), it was inexpensive and worked great.
