Title: Rear wheel bearings.
Post by: Midd on 18 December, 2018, 06:00:01 AM
Hi,folks
             I do not possess a bearing puller,and am going to replace both wheel bearings in the rear wheel .
         I have allready taken the larger bearing out from behind the sprocket.
          The two bearings have a spacer between them ,is it possible to dislodge one spacer by hitting the other thus using the spacer as a removal aid then using a drift to knock out the last one.
          I intend to use a gas torch to heat up the bearing let it cool and hopefully let contraction of metal slightly reduce its diameter.
           Also use a heat gun on the surrounding alloy to expand the material.
          The big question is is there a lip inside the wheel where each bearing finally rests. If so i would not be able to do the above method.or is there only one lip inside ?.i cannot find any info on this point so am at a loss.
Any ideas .thanks Midd.
