Any one have have press in the west valley to use to press a wheel bearing out of the knuckle, press a new one in then press the hub on? Just got to love sealed bearings on independent suspension.
Thank you again for the use of the press even if that thing wouldn't move. What I did was use a single plate under it so the longest arm just hung over the end and worked to level with sockets and no wood then just went for broke. Got lucky and nothing broke and the bearing gave in. If I had know it went together would have probably just put it together yesterday. The 12 ton I have is a lot more pieces, plus need to work to keep it sqaure while putting it together. If you don't tighten it up real tight it's pretty flimsy. I bought it used for cheap and not complaining. It's come in handy a few times and pretty easy to tuck away. But for this bearing doubt it would have been up to the task.What do you mean it came out with no issue??? That blasted thing was not budging and I know we but a crapload of force on it. Well, glad you got it out without too much more fuss anyway.
