So, for those who remember (and care) I broke my duncan bearing. It was dented. So, I discovered how to take of the shield. Do these in order until it comes off.
- Bang it on the table.
- Take the C-clip and get it out
- Use a neede/ C-clip, go to the other side of the bearing, and poke out the stuck shield.
From here, things get risky. I’m not responsible.
- Take off one shield, submerge the bearing in water, then put on the other shield and the C-clip. Don’t put the C-clip into the on that’s stuck. Your bearing should be full of water. Still keeping it submerged, put it in a ziploc bag. Kind of scoop it up. Drain some water, leave enough to cover the bearing. Then, freeze it. Check tomorrow.
- This is the last one, and the last resort. Take a knife, and just poke a hole in the shield (the stuck on of course! Then, use a thumbtack to enlarge the hole. The shield needs to be broken in two. Use the tack to move the shield up, so you can grab the broken side. Pull.
