Anybody done the mainshaft bearing swap on one of these things? I just completed it Friday after messing with it a little every night since last Sunday. It finally required pulling out sections of the bearing cage so I could make stouter hooks, then heating up the case, then several shots with a 10 pound slide hammer. The PVC pipe puller did not work.
Getting that bearing out was a major bitch.
On the upside, there is less bottom end noise, but I'm still gonna line the skidplate.
