Thread: 1936 servicar rear hub removal

    Default 1936 servicar rear hub removal

    Greetings
    So, I'm trying to remove the rear wheel on my 36 servi, only to find that you need a special puller to remove the rear wheel. I dont have one and no one seems to make them. Colonys discription on the hub puller is incorect and only works on 37 and later (im not sure how much later) Anyone have any ideas who may make one or have one they would part with or lend out? I have the hub caps and thought I might have a local machine shop make me a puller, They looked at me and asked " you want what"? If I knew the size and thread pitch, I don't, It would be outside my skill level to machine that fine of a thread pitch. Any help wold be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I believe I have an early one. I'll look later to make sure.

    Some years ago I had the pleasure of a 1970 HD Servi-car.
    Needed to pull the drums and after too much struggle purchased off Amazon:

    OTC (7394) Universal Hub Puller

    Bought largely based on this review:

    "I was trying to pull a brake drum off a Harley-Davidson Servi-Car, which has a tapered axle,
    and the brake drum is torqued down on it. Things been on this machine for 51 years.
    Work on this for DAYS, made my own tool (which stripped out) and this tool, with a touch of
    Bernz-O-Matic heat, did the job in 3 minutes! This tool is tough as heck, and is worth the money.
    Hands down. Wish more tools were made this tough!"

    Purchased puller; performed GREAT!
    Sadly bike/trike is gone.
    But I kept that puller.

    Good Luck.

    I have these two, I believe the larger diameter one is the one you need. What is the approximate OD of the threads?

    Greetings
    Thanks for the input. I don't belive that a gear puller will work on this style of hub. I've included a picture, to show that with the spokes installed there's no way to mount a puller. I have considered removing the tire while the wheel is mounted, remove the spokes and then try using a gear puller. However the hubs for these early years are kinda flimsy looking and very hard to find , I mean very hard to find in good condition. 1937 they added a different rear brake that changed a lot of peices parts in the rear end. The threaded section is around 2 1/4 inch. I think I'll just hang on until I find the right tool.
    Thanks

    Holy crap, that's a lot of tools. The puller should be around 2 1/4 inches.

    It looks like this is it. It measures about 2-3/16 inside. It has a back bevel to clear the spokes when installed and is about 1" deep . It is also brand new so the threads are perfect. PM me.

    More of the tools and a closeup of the puller... the smaller is for '37-'50.
