NO, NO, NO!!! DO NOT HIT THE END OF THE PULLER!!!


AGREE! I know this is common on some makes but on a Packard axle, hitting the end of the puller directly which would transmit inward force to the end of the axle is specifically cautioned against in the service manuals for the very reason JWL mentions. The SM isn't as refined as John in saying it will be damaged. It outright says the thrust block can shatter and to me that means destroyed not damaged.

Most have used the regular two ended knock piece that comes with the puller and hit the ends of that with a heavy hammer to tighten. The rotational shock is no worse than driving down the road. Let it sit and then come back after awhile and hit it again. I had one that took almost a day under increasing tension from the hammer before it popped free. Some have even resorted to a light application of heat on the hub to try and expand it a bit.

The caution about possible damage to the thrust block by hammering on the end of the axle shaft is appropriate and very important, but note it does not apply to Packard-built Angleset rear axles. On them each shaft is independently locked in position and no thrust block is used.

From the FWIW Department:

Had a really balky wooden spoke wheel on a model 66 Peerless that I had to get off to pull the axles to remove the carrier assembly. I used a logging chain and a gear puller and buckets of penetrating oil and it still wouldn't come off. One day, I finally rapped the top of the hub bit with a 3# hammer. It came off so fast I like to got my hand broken.

Didn't break anything, just broke the wheel loose.

The gouge on my hand healed.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

There is also a risk of damaging the axle bearings. Not a good idea to pound on the end of the axle regardless of type.

I meant a tap or two, not to pound on it!

Don, rereading your post I see where you say a rap or two. Still, the discussion is a good precautionary measure for others who may be tempted to apply more force than you recommended. Peace.
