Casper had the thread on the old site, the new needs the same.

I'll fire it off with this piece I made last night.

Image

So what we have here, other than beer :cheers: , a piece of exhaust pipe (left over scrap), a strut rod washer (from when I replaced the bushings), and a front hub bearing with the cage removed. Put them together and you end up with this contraption.

Image

It's a tool (must be used with a press) to aid in installing the bearings onto the hub without causing damage to the bearing. The inside of the old bearing, I reemed out with my barrel sander so it slides easily over the hub. Used it today, worked great, much better than it did when it was separate pieces.

That'll work, it's much more thought out than the one I use.

I looked to see if I had any new ones left, but I don't. They were good sellers.

Very crude, but effective and takes up minimal space in my junkyard box.
