Bought a press from Harbor freight after hours of fighting with that piece of junk took it to work and had the new bearing Pressed in less than 30 seconds.


So much easier when you have the right tools.

I plan on doing this chore next week.
Polaris 500HO fronts.

I'm guessing extracting the olds is where the fight began?

I don't have a press, but can use one at work if need be- I'd prefer to get it nocked out on my days off.

Did you try heating before pressing?

Older I get the more I hate mechanic work. Always turns into a bigger project than you start with.

Yep. put those bearings in the freezer and some heat on the hub and they will drop right in. no press needed.

Good deal, the bearings have been the freezer about ten days so far

I intended to do this last set off but ran out of time.
They will be as frozen as they'll get by the time I take them out (obviously there all ready).

I purchased from "ALL BALLS" racing and was caught off guard when my wife asked why my "ball things" were in the freezer

Take a small prybar and get between it and rear end and pry out on it. Go from one side to the other then rotate it. If itís never been out, it may take a lil bit. When installing new one put a lil grease or never seize on it.

Crows foot or a small pry bar alternating sides. The ring on the end of the shaft sometimes gets fussy. It will come out.

Grease the shizznit out of it when you put it back in.

If the above doesnít work. There is a vise grip with a with a weighted sledge set up that will come out very easy. I have a screen shot but canít get it to upload. Should be able to get it out in seconds with it without messing up the housing.
