It's tough to argue with experience, but I would pull on a bearing seperator, not the flanges themselves. If I coudn't find a way to get the separator to bear on the smaller diameter inside of the flange, I would machine a suitable ring as a spacer, then cut it in half. The idea is to bear as uniformly on the flange as possible, as close to the center as possible. There is just too much chance that a 3-way puller will warp the flanges to make me feel comfortable with it.

Steve Barner, who was the only one who showed up at the time trial in the rain tonight--those other riders must not have fenders like the ones on my '77 Paramount--but rode the course at full-bore anyway, Bolton, Vermont

--and with all those imaginary people lining the road chanting "Lance-Lance-Lance." Guess they don't know my name isn't Lance.
