Removing pilot shaft bearing

Post  HorsinAround on April 8th 2013, 4:46 pm

Crank I have came out of a truck with a clutch and has a roller pilot bearing in it. What is the best way to remove them besides a hammer and punch to take it out in pieces?

Fill the cavity behind the bearing inside the crank with grease, find a shaft that fits the bearing snug with the grease filled to the outside of the bearing start the shaft into the bearing then hit it with a hammer. It will force it out. Just make sure you have the shaft squarely lined up.

Believe me ,it works great,once you get the cavity filled behind the bearing . Sealed or not,bushing style or bearing style .
