I couldn't get mine off either. Been running around now with 69 year old grease in the wheel bearing I suppose.

I was finally able to get the rear hubs off. I bought a second puller and combined the two so it had five legs. Then got the big hammer out and after alot of hits it finally came off. Good thing I was able to get them off cause there was barely any grease in it.

So now the only thing left is to replace the master and bleed it then I can move on to the engine

Congratulations!

Yeah, getting the right tool for the job helps a lot.
The bearings look pretty good...

So the brakes are done which is good progress. So I moved on to the fuel system. The carb was clean and dry so that was easy. But that's where the easy ended. I knew there was "fuel" in tank but all the lines are clogged. Well from the shut off valve to the tank. So it looks like I'm replacing everything from the tank to pump. Wasn't expecting that.
