Swapped the bearing last night. I used a big bearing splitter, a few sockets, a propane torch, and a 12 ton press. Oiled everything up good before squeezing it back together. I used the Jaguar fan idler bearing. Had to cut about 1/4" of the end of the shaft. The bearing body is longer than the LR unit and protrudes into the casing a bit. I tried to show how I set up the press for each push. Also there was a big ass frog hangin' by the pool. Couldn't get the bearing in the pic for size comparison though.
