Here is a post I started over at JCNA, where I used a OTC hub puller.
Re.: Churchil Hub Puller | Jaguar Clubs of North America.

I made a mandrel so the centre of the hub puller would stay "square" on the axle.
The OTC screw part that comes in contact with the axle doesn't fit and when applying this much pressure, it can't go out of alignment, not even a little.
Use a very thick grease on the threads of the tool and on the ends where it comes in contact with the axle.

I think there is a post here with some photo's too, a search should bring it up.
Edit:

Here it is,

https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/m...r-axle-101214/

It's actually a fitting for hydraulic line, where it threads right on the end of the axle.
The idea was to keep the axle from being damaged (blooming) when applying pressure on it.
If you need, I can check later to see what the threads are _ I know they are just standard _ not BSF or some weird British thread.
I had a machine shop, fix the end so the OTC puller would centre on it.
And if you look closely, there are some small brass plates on the inside of my adapter to also protect the end of the axle.

Thanks Jeff for your response.
i have removed the hubs on the axle but whilst doing so i have damaged the threads on axle shaft on one side that cannot be die threaded, so now i have to replace the shaft but am stuck on how to remove as i do not have a slide hammer and cannot get a castle nut on the shaft. any suggestions welcome thanks

They can be die threaded, I damaged mine a bit too before I made the end to protect the threads.
It depends how damaged they are, if they're crushed so bad you may not get the die to start properly.
In the old days you could get this sort of set up where the die was in two separate halves. If the end of the thread was so damaged you could place the two die pieces on the healthy part of the thread and back it out, repairing the damaged thread.

The size is 7/8 NFT 14 threads per inch _ nothing special.

If you must take the axle out, there are for bolts holding the outer bearing race in place. Once the bolts and housing is removed, you should be able to simple grab the end with your bare hands and pull it out _ it's not in that that tight.
If it won't come out easily, then putting a pair of large vice-grips on the end and tapping with a hammer should loosen it _ hold the hammer side ways.
