I remember seeing a video on how to remove and replace that bearing inside the belt/drive cover using some flat steel plate, some nuts and bolts and some wood...but I'm darned if I can find it. I think it was from our friend Stefano Bonacasa. I've searched You Tube and this forum without success.

Does anyone remember which topic it appeared in or have the link to you tube?

Many thanks study

that is one tough bearing to replace. I used the wet toilet paper method but grease method would be faster. if there is a next time I will be drilling two holes in cover so I can use punch driver.

I'm not familiar with the wet toilet paper method, how does that work? I can't quite make it out from the pics.

IIRC StevenB used a couple of bolts which just fit in the bearing. What’d that be, maybe M8? Anyway he ground down the bolt head width and then the bolt head thickness until it fit under the bearing. The bolt head is now “L” shaped. So the bolt heads were inserted under the bearing and then rotated to catch the underside. The bolt threads, now facing up, were inserted into a flat bar which had appropriately spaced holes and secured by nuts. The flat bar had a larger center hole with a long bolt and some kind of “block” which fit on that center casting. It also may have been that the bearing pocket, both inside & street side, was heated with a heat gun too. Anyway that center bolt was cranked down and the “L” shaped bolts pulled the bearing up & out.

A second alternative would be: You’ll need a sturdy workbench and a ~18” section of 4” x 4” lumber. The 4 x 4 is laid down on the bench parallel and near the front edge. The bearing pocket (inside & outside) is heated. Really heated. Use a proper heat gun or judiciously use a gas torch. When the pocket is good & hot grasp the smaller end of the cover (gloved hands), turn it over so that the bearing side is facing down, swing it down very abruptly & firmly on to the 4 x 4 the bearing will pop out. Effort = Results. The 4 x 4 is there to protect the edge of the belt case.

Ah yes, thanks Tim. I can picture it in my head now. As I don't have a proper heat gun I think I prefer your first explanation. I reckon I can fabricate the tool. thumbs up

grease and wet paper is same method. the spacer in pictures was simple to maker.. its just a section of strap iron rolled to correct width. needs to fit snug in gap. apply grease to gap. ie. get it packed, no air pockets. place spacer over the gap and wack with hammer. the grease hydraulically pops bearing out from behind. its a joy to see work first time. common practice on older cars with pilot bearings pressed  into clutch flywheels.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00OlG5E8vLk

Hydraulic power works nice even force on all sides of bearing but only works with a sealed bearing.
Use plenty of paper nothing like that feeling when the paper tears. Mad Smile
