Has anyone replaced crank bearings without the press tool? Hopefully I will be able to get that apart and spec'd out today or tomorrow.
I am going to try and do the carrier bearing without the tool, but the mains worry me about damaging the cases.
The wear on the carrier bearing is really odd looking, I don't understand how that could have been done unless the crank is not square, but then it seems there would be a lot of other issues. Maybe the bearing got cocked??
Not advice, but id cut the case bearing with a demil style or a hack saw blade and the carefully pry it out.....if you could get the correct size socket use the old bearing to tap the new one in maybe. Think your going to need a press for the big ends.
