Well got a lot done today, even special because the suspension went in!









Had to do this!

I was able to borrow one of my club members em bearing puller and took full advantage of it.




Boy my back is sore.....



Some of the bearings slowly slid off, others were more resistant and popping as they were pulled.

One of the next projects is to disassemble all the bearings, clean them up and see what I have to work with.

Tom,

Guess you had a few spares to do that with as well.

So the puller worked well?

Now let us know how it works as an installer!

Yes Gary, worked well, just a bit of effort with the wrench. If it was mine I would have made a custom 1.25 wrench with a 3 foot handle to make the job easier.
Since it was yours I was not going to take any chances. grinning smiley

The Vise is a MUST or you could create a mounting plate and use the 2 unused tapped holes to mount it to something on the floor.

I think I am going to use my hydraulic press and a pipe to press the bearings on, much easier.

Thanks again for the tool loan! thumbs up

Tore apart the steering box, all the grease was like jello.



Replaced all bearings and bushings and races.



All adjusted and ready to install.
