Thought I would have a go some time to make one but I need to know -
1/ what is the thread size and pitch of the MY front axle (the big one that the split pit goes into)
2/ is the thread size the same for the MY and the L series.

The best way to describe the tool is to imagine a piece of steel tube where the internal bore has a thread that screws onto the end of the drive shaft. The outer diameter slides inside the bore of the wheel bearing and has a thread on its external diameter.
A nut with a chamfer on one end is threaded to fit onto the thread on the outer diameter of the steel tube.
To use the tool the tube is slide into/through the inside diameter/bore of the wheel bearing(s) and housing and screwed onto the end of the drive shaft. The nut with the chamfer is screwed onto the outer side of the wheel bearing housing and as the nut is turned it pulls the tube and the axle back through the wheel bearing and housing till the original axle nut and split/chamfered washer can be fitted and pull the axle through the rest of the way.
Hope this makes sense.
