So I rented a bearing puller from Advanced to remove the repair bearing.
Turns out all the attachments do not fit with my axle. I ended up using jaw pullers with the slide hammer.
Not sure what I would use when and if I had to remove factory bearings I bought today.
The biggest bearing puller attachment fits the bearing opening well and the bearing, but it will not fit into the main axle opening that the back of the bearing seats against
When I tried that attachment behind the bearing I was pulling out, it was just digging into the axle tube and not pulling the bearing. I Think part of this damage was from someone else as well, since I could feel the burrs with my finger before pulling the bearing out. I will clean this up with a dremmel.
It is the right size to catch the bearing carrier
The next puller side down fits in the tube, but does not catch the bearing carrier for pulling
In order for this kit to work, The bearing would have to be far enough away from the lip of the tube to allow the puller to flip up in the milled bearing opening without hitting the tube.
What have others done to pull these bearings?
