Bearing race removal ***Update***
Okay, I consider myself to be pretty dang handy around most things mechanical, but I need some assistance.
I am replacing the rear wheel bearing on my Dana 44 and can't seem to get the old race out to install the new one.
When I rebuilt the axle I used a "slap" hammer with little jaws (WBCarver, wanna take a road trip to loan a tool? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]), but I don't have access to that now and NAPA wants $75 for one. I tried using a pulley puller and reversing the jaws but it wouldn't really catch. I have thought of cutting it most of the way through and breaking it loose with a cold chisel, but I don't want to tear up the race area too bad.
Any other tidbits of wisdom?
