No-Cost Axle Puller

Duration: 0:59

You can never have enough tools, but if you’ve been restoring cars long enough, you have most of what you need. But for those starting out or building cars on a limited budget, the key to building cars is to make the most of what you do have.

This same scenario applies when you are away from your tools at a junkyard, pulling parts, or broken down by the side of the road. Perhaps this is one thing we truly enjoy about the hobby: taking a close look at a problem, then using a little innovation and common sense find a way to resolve the issue with the resources you have available.

We join Mark Simpson as he shows us a clever way to create an axle puller using the car’s rear brake drum on a classic 1967 Ford Mustang. Normally you would use an axle puller attachment on a slide hammer to get the job done, but Simpson demonstrates this proven technique will also get the job done in short order with no cost.
