  1. Decided to replace the bearing on my spitfire which I thought was the source of the noise emanating from the left rear wheel. Thinking this a one-day jobby, got myself a universal hub puller (mistake); start to puller, hammer and heating it up with a flame - no joy. At some point I realised; I don’t hear the noise anymore when turning, why? This is after dismantling everything including the brakes. So I decided to inspect the brake part where I discover it is missing the cylinder retaining plate and the cylinder has a scratch mark just there where the back of the wheel stubs passes. At which time it dawned on me that this is probably the source of the noise. I could kick myself. I wish I could say I just order this £3 retaining plate, reassemble everything and it is job done. No. Because I used a flame to heat up the hub I probably cooked the oil seal which needs to be replaced now, and to do that ….. I need to pull off the hub - back to square one. Still don’t have the hub off; any advise welcome. What I really need now is to lay my hands on a proper hub puller - does anybody have one I can hire for a day? I live in Beckenham (BR3)
