The Old CJ2A Page Message Archive

Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

You are right on that. I know how to stand to the side of the puller
(and behind my brake jobs!)
All the other guys on this page should take notice and heed this warning. Some guys back off the castle nut a few turns, before they use the puller. Even then it is possible for the whole shebang to fly off the axle anyways and you would have ruined the axle thread as well. Whenever possible, do your drum pulling outside and far enough away from anything it can fly into.
If you have them on hand, a few square straw bales make a good backstop.
