Bottom yoke

Recommended Posts


Yes Sir, a Dremel (or a Chinese clone), some heat and a sharp chisel. No problems, just watch out for flying parts in your workshop as you give it a nice blow after almost cutting through the bearing.

Break the rollers and cage ,and IF you have an arc welder quickly weld a good blob on opposite sides of the remaining inner , with a punch I can always lightly then tap inner off .

Yes the proper way of doing it is with a press, but if the person using the press doesn't know how to use it properly, and there's plenty that don't and you don't make or have appropriate covers/spacers etc then you can do more harm than good. 

Personally I've always used the method of breaking the outer cage and using a Dremmel type tool to grind through the inner race carefully when it thins out enough it will crack through due to the interference fit of the bearing.

I always do it by hand with a small bearing splitter , or carefully with a dremmel as above ...But the stem from the lower yoke is anther story , CAREFUL Press work with the proper pieces to keep everything square and true , if not things split in undesired places ...
