Re: [T3] Wheel bearings


If you've got to do this, you've got another problem, not the right
parts or a burr.  All the ones I've ever worked on have been a tap-in
fit.  That's very light blows with a rawhide mallet and a large
socket, not full-arm swings with a sledge. Measure and compare the old
race with the new race before starting, or better yet, take the old
one with you anFhem at the parts place.
