Removing front stub axle roller bearing

299 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Z.G
Working through my axle rebuild. Can’t for the life of me get the sfub-axle needle bearing out.

Trailfitters video shows him using a bent drift and a few taps. With a straight drift I can’t catch an edge on it. Tried making a bent drift from threaded rod but still can't quite bite enough to push it out as the seal seems to absorb some of the blow.

Any tips for getting these out easier?

Figured it out. Big 12” nail backwards so that the flat head catches between the seal and the bearing.
