How do i remove these transmission-bearings?

Postby Dan Lumbye » Sun Sep 04, 2016 5:12 am



Hi

Big problems in Dans Hondagarage :-)

I just can't figure out, how to remove these bearings. Normally i would use my slide-hammer and bearing puller, but in these two situations, there is a little oil-channel protruding taking the place for the puller.

What to do?

All the best
Dan

Those are what we call a blind pull bearing in the transmission business. They are without a doubt the most challenging bearing to work with. Heat the housing with a map gas torch. The housing will expand more than the bearing. The inner one will require some type of special puller and may require further disassembly. Not the best news.

Die grinder and cut off wheel. Two parallel cuts on inner race one each side of oil orifice going as far as you can go without cutting into cap/retainer. Now with hammer and chisel on cuts just made you want to shatter inner race and remove with rollers, you can then remove outer race from retainer with standard pullers/technique. Cut off wheel should be worn down some for better fit in those close quarters.

Hi

I got the bearings out. This is how i did it:
I bought two M12 nuts and welded them on the center-rings of the bearings. The M12 nuts fitted on my sliding-hammer and getting them out was very easy. Here is a picture:

Could you not have put a small socket in the hole so that the spigot petruded into the socket and then use a normal puller, with it pushing on the socket (to protect the spigot?). Welding a nut and using a puller is also a good solution, but more work!!

Unfortunately no, The problem was, that my puller could´t get to the bottom of the bearing, because of the spigot.
There are 3 bearings on the bike, that can´t be removed with standard puller. These where the two of them :-)

Best
Dan
