Inputshaft bearing R/R
Posted 27 September 2003 - 11:17 PM
First clean the inside of the bealhousing
Next remove T/O bearing , arm, and remove the cover over the inputshaft.
Remove the snapring that holds the bearing on the shaft.
Now tap on the shaft until the shaft bottoms out about 1/4 inch
Then pull the shaft up , this will bring the bearing with it . Now I use small pieces of angle iron and slip them under the outer snap ring on the bearing.
Then tap on the shaft again until it bottoms again, about 1/2 inch or a little more .
Keep doing this process until the bearing is off the shaft.
To instal clean shaft and put some anti size on it then in stall the bearing . I use a piece of pipe that is yust big enought to fit over the shaft.
Remeber to instal the outer snap ring as not all manufactures supply the bearing with one.
Tap the bearing down untill it bottoms and you can put the inner snap ring back on.
put the cover , T/O bearing and arm back on , and you are ready to put it back in the car.
I usually buy these bearings at a bearing supply house like Besco they usually have a better price.

My advice before buying the bearing is to try to get the old one out first, then buy the bearing, as I think it is more common that these are beyond "tapping on the input shaft".....more like "take 5 ton hydraulic press".
My 2.6 cents..... :-/

so, it's a good idea to replace that bearing before it becomes a more expensive problem.
