Hub Puller Needed - Denver area

    If it ain't one thing, it's another....Thought I had a leaking brake cylinder, but nooooo. Have a leak on the right rear axle. I've read many threads and watched the video on the Alpine channel (great video). Appears my oil seal is shot. So, wonder if there is anybody in the Denver area with a hub puller?

    I dont have a puller, but where are you in Denver?

    Also.... Its more work but you can replace an axle seal by removing the whole brake back plate. There are a set of gaskets that need replaced and the bearing will also need pressed out.
    Not easier but possible.

    Someone needs to setup a club tool rental for something like this.

    Rick @ Sunbeam Specialties has one that he loans out. Just pay postage back and forth. Works great, took off wire wheel and regular hubs.

    Thanks for the info. Didn't think of asking Rick and didn't see any threads mentioning it. I've certainly bought my share of parts from SS over the years.

    Used to live in the Morrison area, in the Willowbrook neighborhood. Loved it, but was working in Aurora. Long commute and had to move.

    I work in Golden, (pre Covid), and drove my Alpine there almost once a week. 12th & Jackson right downtown.

    Talked to Larry @ Sunbeam Specialties, told him about the puller loan out. The process is he gets your card info (which he has if most of you have used his services) and charges postage back and forth about $35 round trip. About as close to a “club” puller you could have. New ones cost around $140 if you order the extra arm, it come with 3 & you need 4.

    Used the free loan at AutoZone for their 7 ton puller and it worked well.
