Stub Axle Bronze Bush

I can't seem to find a part number for this bronze bush. Does it come as part of the stub axle? It's the front stub axle off a 94 Defender.

Also, any tips on how to get that bearing out without the special tool?

Thanks

I wouldn't mess with either of them. Grease them up and put them back in service. The bearing will be fine if you knock it out from the other side but the seal will die.

I should have mentioned, the reason I was looking for the bronze bush is because the stub axle needs replacing. A wheel bearing must have seized at some point in the past and the stub axle is pretty badly scored.

I have a slide hammer pilot bushing puller that will get those out but it is technically too small so it kind of requires two people. Surely there are other fittings that would make it work but I've yet to have occasion to look for them. Not sure what the function of the bronze bushing is but I think it runs against the face of the CV's bell. You might try heating it in an oven and then popping it off with a homemade mild steel chisel. it might need some cleanup on the outer edge after that operation but I don't think that is the working face so it shouldn't matter.

If you make the chisel flat on one side and place that side toward the bushing it should work and any damage will be to the stub axl which you are discarding anyway.

Or call Will Tillery like Keith said

Depending on how badly and where it's scored you don't really need to replace it. I had one that was so seized that I had to use a bearing puller to get the inner hub bearing race off. I cleaned it up and the new bearing fit fine so even though I'd bought a new one, I didn't replace it. That was about 8 or 9 years ago and I haven't had any issues with it.
Of course if the distance piece is scored you need a "new" stub axle. Land Rover, in their infinite wisdom, made the distance piece so it can't be replaced.

What do you mean by the "distance piece"?

x2... Use a slide hammer with the small jaws to grab the bearing. Pops it right out.

The distance piece is the raised part the seal rides on. It's called a distance piece, at least on Series Rovers because the hub bearing inner race seats against it to locate the hub.
