Bull pinion bearing replacement


Recommended Posts

I have stuffed a wet rag in the spider gear and around the seal then run a bead of weld around the bearing race and it shrinks it and it will come out easy with a couple of pry bars

I've heated the castings before and sprayed an inverted can of freon on the race so you get a double effect that's worked for me on blind hole bearing races if that doesn't do it then I go with a welder trick

Dangerous, but I didn't want slag anywhere near my parts inside there, besides that, I don't think my welder would have reached anyway where I had to do it outside. I waited until it was a breezy night and froze it out with liquid propane, went around it for about 30 seconds then popped it out carefully and easy with a lady slipper bar.
