Ok, tried out my new to me axle puller since nothing else will work. I've put so much pressure on the puller, it's distorting the saucer portion. Nut is loose, brakes not hanging up, emergency brake off and it moved about 3/8" and stopped. i'm literally standing on a breaker bar turning the center bolt, not go. maybe the blue wrench on the hub? right now, I've go pressure on it and hoping in the middle of the night I'll hear a pop and it will be free.



Yes, the saucer is on wrong in this picture.

Did you try loosening the brake shoe adjuster?

smack it with a hammer, right at the hub as close to the center as you can.

That's a nice looking puller.

You say that the drum moves 3/8? Shift it back and forth, working your way around the rim -- i.e. beat on it at 12:00, push it back on, beat on it at 1:00, push it back on, beat on it at 2:00, etc, etc.

If you still have no luck, it's possible that the drums are so worn out that they have a lip that it catching on the shoes. You'd need to back even further off the adjuster.

On one vehicle, I drifted the wheel studs out to get a *very* stuck drum off.

Are there any "jacking screws" or screw holes on the drum inside the wheel stud bolt circle? If not, you can add some once you get it off. They work great.

Ah, a Willys thread. Perhaps I should post a pic here since my user name is due to a 1951 Willys wagon body I put on a '76 Scout chassis, thus the IHWillys online handle. Yeah, it's a mutt that's arguably more Scout than Willys but it is one of the possibilities resulting from having a Willys with a crap frame(someone torch cut the drivetrain out of it) and a Scout with no body(well, it had a partial floorpan, firewall and the windshield still there). I'm no master builder but this thing was uber reliable over the years I had it, hauled tons of rock out of the mountains(over 30 trips loaded to the point hitting the rear bumpstops even with helper springs) and was a decent camper vehicle too.

Nice, since it saves you from installing disc brakes from the Scout and then having to shim the axle for caster etc.

the drum isn't hanging on the shoes as the drum rotates freely. I need to get ahold of an acetylene torch to heat the hub off. The axle is tapered and should have released the hub once I got it to move. Maybe the dpo smashed down the woodruff key and it's jamming on that.

No lip on the drum? If it moved it's free, lip inside the drum from wear might be snagging the shoe keeping the drum from coming off.

If that's what it is....cut the two "nails" holding the brake shoes in place from the back, everything should fall off.

It has been a long time since I played with one of them pullers...40 years but.....how can I forget!

Not much of a lip as when I rotate the drum, it barely contacts the shoes. I can see a gap between the drum and the backing plate, usually there would be an overlap. So It's moved some. i'll try to take a better picture. The puller is starting to distort from all the effort, time for the blue wrench, which unfortunately is only Map gas, no oxy.

I'll see if I can get the hold downs off and I can probably unbolt the wheel cylinders as I've got new ones anyway. Only thing left would be the lower portion of the backing plate holding the shoes on as they are fixed. Will take some better pictures today.
