: That procedure is what I remember doing. The Doosie is "knock out bearings". I used a long drift punch going around the perimiter of the bearing to work it out slowly. Put the new ones in the same way. Tip: Pull the half shafts & loosen the big axle nuts with the tires still contacting the ground. Then when you have to torque the nut back on, get it as tight as you can & finish torque it with the tire mounted & contacting the ground again. R&R on the bearings took me 2 hours if I remember right. If I took the arms to a guy with a press he could probably do the job in 10 minutes. YMMV.
1. Would a bearing puller work?
2. Were the allen bolts for the half shafts tough to get off? They look pretty dirty (rusted?).
Actually, I know a small manufacturer near by that has all that kind of stuff (they make small printing presses). So could I pull both hubs ans take them there?
