First tell us what car you are working on so we are on the same page with you for certain.   Assuming you are talkin' what we think you are.....  

Are you looking to pull the axle out of the housing?   That can be done with a slide hammer once you remove the outer bearing seal retainer.

But what I am guessing you are asking is how to get the brake drum off first.  THAT takes a special puller used on Mopars and other cars like Hudsons that had tapered axles.   It looks like the attached photo.   Is this what you need?

It would be the 1960 Savoy in my signature.

No I have a drum puller, and have used it many times. That is how I know I need the rear end seals redone. Last week when we put new wheel cylinders on it was leaking gear oil down the backing plate.
As for the axle, yes I am going to pull it out of the housing, and no I am not going to use a slide hammer, and I have a good reason, the shop manual SPECIFICALLY STATES NOT TO DO SO... It also lists a specific puller designed to pull the axle. That is what I'm looking for.
Oh and if it matters it's an 8 3/4 rear from a v8 car.

Okay, list the specific factory tool number ________ from the mechanic's tools at the dealership that you are looking for that is listed in your shop manual.  Some of those things actually were purchased by dealerships. 

The rest of the technicians used slide hammers and when they couldn't find that or had loaned it out they wrapped a chain around the axle nut and gave the chain a couple of good WHIP motions and the axle came flying right out.   I have NEVER seen one of the actual numbered factory tools.  Anyone else?  

I have used a chain numerous times.   I'm not being sarcastic here.  I'm being totally realistic about what went on with professional mechanics at real dealerships in the big cities and certainly in the smaller towns.

From back in the days of shade tree mechanicking: Take the brake drum off, slide it back on loosely, put the nut on the axle so there is some play in the in the drum, with the car SECURELY on jack stands, use the drum as a slide hammer.

I think he is trying to remove the DRUM from the TAPERED AXEL rather than the axel from the housing. Les Fairchild makes a dandy one but it is pricey.... but worth the money. Let me know if you want a link to his page.

NO! I've made it clear in previous posts I AM TRYING TO GET AN AXLE PULLER! I have a drum puller. I have used it many times, I know what it is and how to use it. That is how I know I need to replace the outer seals on the rear end. I replace the wheel cylinders and to do so I removed the drum and the backing plate. When I removed the backing plate it was leaking gear oil from the one side. I need to get an AXLE PULLER so I can remove the axle to replace the seals...

Well, don't be so nasty about!

There is a simple solution. You need to take two nuts and weld them together. One fits the threads on the end of the axel and the second one fits the threads on a slide hammer. When screwed onto each of the threads, you can slide the weight firmly and the axel will start moving out. It may take sever slides of the hammer but it has always worked for us. We keep the newly made tool in our special tools drawer of our tool box.

Here are photos of the tools and homemade adaptor as George has described. We pull axles on a weekly basis, and this set-up has never failed the job.

What an EXCELLENT idea, George. My dim brain would have never thought of that! Thanks.
