Bearing Swap

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.

Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.
