Re: Rear axle seals, help
I have a press and still cut them off.
Actually, I cut into the retaining ring, then split it with a chisel. Then I use a blunt bit in the air chisel to "push" the bearing off.
A press is the most civilized way to put them back on, but you can do it with a piece of pipe like pontiac58 said.
FWIW - mbalbritton made a pretty decent tool to press them on with. Basicly a thick wall pipe with some extra chunks of metal welded on to give it some mass.
Use it kinda like a slide hammer.
Maybe Brent will post a pic.
