Thanks for brick board reply. Unfortunately there is no way I can get hold of the proper puller. Will have to improvise.

A;

...there's nothing wrong with improvising, as long as your improvisation applies the (significant) forces in the same manner as the approved pullers: That is, pushing concentrically on the shaft (nut replaced loosely after turning around) in order to apply pulling force on three (or more) studs.

Applying forces any other way will not work, or bend or break drum, or bend studs or some unsatisfactory/disastrous combination. DON'T DO IT!

People have made their own (blue one shown in link is a (good/approved) home made version) OR you might find one at a service place that works on vintage trucks.

Good Hunting!

As you've shown in some of your pictures, you're not the only "old Volvo" driver in your area so one of them likely has a puller. Even your reasonably local Volvo dealer might have one, especially if they have been in business for a while. Worth asking anyway.

There are other pullers that work but as said, they have to, in effect, push the tapered shaft out of the hub. I branded this make shift method as dangerous but it would work, all things being equal. Don't say you will want to try it though! http://www.brickboard.com/RWD/volvo/...um_puller.html

This type can work but the quality has to be high. A fine thread, the Volvo tool has this, is also essential, as this multiplies the torque applied.

What's the max wear recommended. Is 5mm wall thickness OK?

Made my own...... http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/t...r-972#post1417

I tried the backyard old school lift one half of the car and hit the axle with a sledge. Didn't work.

Job done. Mechanic friend of mine had one. Thanks for all input. It's quite a job restoring an older vehicle here.
