Please add this post after the first part.
- Remove the knuckle by tapping it off with a hammer (does not have to be real hard)
- Catch the knuckle before it falls - notice all the beautiful rust
Now it is time to press the hub and bearings out - I have a press if you do not you will want to take the knuckles somewhere to have this work done.
- Press the hub out - I used a 1-1/8" socket to extend the press
- Next take the retainer clip out of the outside of the bearing (forgot the picture)
- Press the bearing out
- Once the bearing is out you can easily remove the inner clip - You will need to remove this to put the new bearing in.
- Reinstall the outer clip to stop the bearing at the right spot
- Press the new bearing in - I did this from the inside of the knuckle using the old bearing to press on the outside of the new bearing - instead of pressing on the inner race an possibly messing up the bearing
- Put in the inner retaining clip
- Press the hub in (new or used if still ok) - you can see the inner retaining clip in this picture
This time when I removed the hub the inner bearing race came with it. If this happens you will have to figure out how to get it off. Here is how I did it.
- Oh no stuck bearing race
- Break out the die grinder with cutoff wheel
- Grind the race - trying not to cut into the hub - I got mine a little
- Use a large chisel to crack the race - do this by putting it in the cut and smacking it with the hammer
- Then you should be able to pop the race loose
- Now it should come right off
Better stop now since I hit my second limit of 10 pictures.
Let me know if I left anything out.
Install in reverse order as removed. I am not just saying that. Everything goes together perfect that way.
