anyone know of a hub puller that can be bought to work on a 96, all the ones ive found are too small to get on the wheel mounting bolts...

It has a top hat section that is threaded to take a large screw that tapers to fit the centre of the axle. You turn the screw with a spanner towards the axle which pulls the drum off via the stud bolts.
Also try fitting the wheel and pulling on that. Remember to back the shoes off!

Did you make that one of yours i've used?

If anyone is interested in some pics, let me know & I'll try to recover the 'puller' from the shed and post some photos.
