Won't do anything for the brakes but switching to DEXTER "NEVER LUBE" bearing sets will eliminate a lot of the dirty work in what you are doing-just a thought.

The slide hammer puller shown in the post
[image]

can be used for pulling gears, hubs, seals, bushings or a variety of other hub type components.

The actual slide hammer part is the large piece of steel with the circular groves on the long rod. This "hunk" of metal makes a hammer and slides along the rod until it hits the end of the T shaped handle. The bottoming out at the end produces an impact force into the long rod and creates a pulling effect to break loose and remove hubs.

The are many attachments that screw onto the end of a slide hammer arrangement.

Your terms, locks and ignition, need a little more description on what you are up to. Are you trying to pull a key cylinder lock out of a steering column?

Hope this helps.

Excellent article on brake and wheel bearings! Good job explaining the process so even "your Grandma" can do it. [emoticon]

My only caution is when drying the bearings after washing them. NEVER under any circumstances "spin" the bearing with high pressure! The cage used to hold the bearing rollers is only ment to hold the rollers in alignment when installed in the outer race. The rollers can fly out of the cage by centrifugal force when spun at high speeds. If that happens one can ruin a bearing or worse lose an eye or teeth! If you must use air pressure, use "canned air" like is used to clean computer keyboards (Radio Shack), turn down the air pressure to less than 20psi AND hold the bearing cage so it doesn't spin.
