    I hadn't tightened it up yet so it wasn't center, I did forget to install the nut on shaft before removing hub, but came off and shaft is fine so no issues.
    Its a puller I bought from Snap- on 30+ years ago, don't use it much, but priceless when I need it.
    Brakes were redone before the car was parked, so I lucked out. I'm going to replace rubber hoses and master cylinder, and then I should have brakes.

        After some work, I got spark. Cleaned out the tank and lines, added a couple of gallons of fuel , changed oil and filter. Let’s see what happens next

          Really looks like it had been cared for. Looking forward to following along.

            Not letting me post video of 1st start, but after a few minutes it’s running good, no smoke. Once I replace the master cylinder, I should have brakes and be moving under it’s own power.

              Seems only logical to use a classic penetration oil on a classic car

                Are you aware that the Rear Axle Key, Axle and Hub Center MUST be clean and Dry before re-assembly?
                Any grease on those Parts will cause the Key to be forced to far into the Hub damaging it and possibly cracking it.

                Always Purchase and follow the Studebaker Shop Manual and have the Chassis and Body PARTS Catalogs handy for understanding the assembly and ordering Parts.

                  I have that same can, missing cap and all. I've always 3 in 1 around as my mom used to use the same brand for her Singer Sewing Machine.

                    Since I was young enough to remember, 3-in-1 is the only multipurpose oil my family used. With the new Marksman spout it’s become even more versatile. I use it to pre-lube almost everything that doesn’t have a torque spec: headlight ring screws, fender screws, throttle linkages, etc etc.

                    The distinctive smell just like WD-40 you can never forget.

                      Not a lot has happened with the Studebaker lately. We bought it at a Estate sale, brought it home, then went back and bought the house. Now it looks like we are moving to North Ga. Once we get settled, I can jump back on this.

                        Hub puller looks fine. Presume there is a point on the inside bolt. Studegary is correct about using the tool. Put the nut on backwards on the axle so the ends of the axle threads are not damaged. Btw, nice car!

                          Got it apart only to find that it needs everything, drums, shoes, cylinders, now deciding on which way to go with it. Full over haul on brakes and keep drums, convert to disc, or upgrade suspension and everything. I plan on adding a lot of mileage to her .
                          I haven't seen a pro touring Studebaker......Hmmm
