While the puller from Precision looks nice it will only work on one type of hub. The OP stated he has both style hubs on his car so the precision puller will only work on one side.

You're welcome, glad to help.
Let me know if you would like photos, or dimensions, or whatever.
It would be nice if you could post some photos when you are done with it.
Good luck with the fabrication.

Well since it says "Mithchell Manufacturing" at the top of the Installation Instructions PDF provided by Bratton's in their online catalog I would have to say they are one and the same...

Good point. I looked at the pdf earlier and now I recall seeing Mitchell at the top. It just didnít register at the time.... Yup, they should be the same. Lol

I have the Mitchell hub puller. Went to use it and the hubs just slipped off before I could get the puller mounted!

Just one more illustration of why the axle nuts should be checked for proper tightness periodically.

Picked up a Cal Van style puller for 5.00 years ago. Used it a lot.
