Is this an AMC20 rear end?

I'm guessing it is for an AMC 20.
If so:

1) NOT hardcore.
2) You gotta use a real axle puller, it doesn't matter how big a gear puller you put on it, you're not gonna budge it.
3) "Tap" the wings of the butterfly around. (I use a full arm swing w/ a 5lb sledge.)
4) Every now and then, give a nice robust smack to the end of the puller shaft. The shock is what pops the hub loose, not the force of the puller.
5) Keep at it. It takes more perserverence than gorilla tactics.

i've pulled these with ease just using the brake drum like a slide hammer .flip the drum around backwards and put all the lug nuts back on making sure to engage the same amount of threads on each one.use the drum like a slide hammer.i've pulled probably like 5 this way never had much of a problem.
