I’m having trouble getting the D size bearing out of my YYR Six for siliconing, could anyone help me with this?? Thank you
here’s your options
freeze it, steel doesn’t shrink, but aluminum does, so may be easier to get off
get a drill bit or rod almost the exact size of the ID of the bearing to be easier to get off
use pliers, but be very careful, more of a last resort
If you don’t care about the bearing and none of the above work and you’re hulk smash angry, then grab a pair of vice grips and smash the bearing off… Only done this once lol
Right on the front page of this section there’s a number of posts about removing bearings. A wealth of info in them. Check them out.
Here’s a nice, new fresh one with some good info.
