Hub Buster

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

Fair enough .

As I always say : get as much information from as many sources as you can then sift through it and make your choice .

I've only been a Journeyman Mechanic for 50 + years, factory and dealer training plus always asking if I can help/watch or how did you do that etc.

Some are not open minded, their loss .

No experience, so looking at diagram and description to base these comments.

I agree that the three leg, OEM puller only puts pressure on the end of the shaft and the 3 lugs. BUT when you strike the center bolt of the puller with a hammer, all that force (impact) is imparted to everything attached to that shaft, which includes the CV joint. Striking that bolt is the same as striking the shaft.

And not taking sides here.
