hi guys, how do i split the intermediate shaft from the main axle so i can remove the bearing carrier? I bought a pair of Insane Shafts and need to install the carrier on to their bearing.
Thanks Catsailr, those links are for Esprit’sHopefully this link and the links in the thread will help you.
Another job I want to do when I get home from my current business trip is to completely remove the driver's side rear half shaft & hub carrier assembly. I understand there is some sort of roll pin on the inner part of the half shaft that ties the halfshaft to the output shaft of the gearbox. Is...www.lotustalk.com
Heated the carrier to about 250deg and it slips right on.I think you are asking about separating that bearing assembly to the left in your picture so that you can get the shaft into a press? There is large a circlip inside the bearing housing (approximately where the Oetiker clamp was). Once you pull the boot and that circlip, the bearing comes apart easily.
I am not sure how you will be able to press that bearing carrier into place on an already-assembled new shaft?
Yes a circlip holds the bearing in.It takes about 5 tons on a hydraulic press to get the bearing out. I only did the press work for Henry,you would have to ask him about the shields.Oh, that is great to know. Thanks! A circlip keeps the bearing in place?
Did you reuse the dust covers or abandon them?
