  • K-D Wheel Removal Tool Mystery?

    I don't see how this would work, and can't imagine why anyone needs a wheel removal tool anyway. The center hole is just a hair under 3 1/4".
    As the two levers move together the plates spread apart a few thousandths because of a series of ramps on the inside of the plates.

    Boy, that's a good one. My first thought was perhaps part of a steering wheel puller, but I can't imagine how or what might be missing to make it work for that purpose either.

      Looks to be as useful as a bladeless knife without a handle.

      Tom, how do you come up with this stuff, anyway? LOL

        One of the club members brought it to the meeting last night. It just make no sense to me. I can't even figure out where it would be installed.

          Good find Tom. I can’t for the life of me see how it would work. I like that it’s stamped “Model A”.

            Possibly for getting a handle for grabbing the front hub. I can not think of any other use that would be practicle. Rod

                Thanks Bob, that sure explains how that is suppose to work, knowing that that part is the ring that holds the fingers around the edge makes a huge difference!
                You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

                    Thanks Bob, I figured there must be parts missing, but I still don't see how it works.

                      Tom, you pull that ring you have all the way up and it opens the jaws then place the puller over the hub and push the ring down
                      and it locks it on the hub.

                        So, the wheel is off and this tool locks to the hub, and pulls the hub loose from the tapered end of the axle?
                        Then it should be called a hub puller, and not a wheel puller.

                          I'm having a hard time picturing it also,, what does the ring part do?

                            Mitch, that is a "One size fits all" universal hub puller. You can tell by the steps on the fingers that it is made for several different size hubs. You take the whole thing, ring and all, slide it on a hub, then move the ring to the placement on the fingers that locks it on that hub and screw the bolt in and it presses on the axle to remove the drum/hub.
