Bearing puller recomendations ??

Any recomendations for a bearing puller that I can use to pull my axle bearings?

a cutting wheel on a angle grinder, and a chisel punch. i grinded mine down just b4 the axle. then split it apart with a chisel. you can also bring the axles to a driveshaft shop. they will press new ones on and old ones off cheap.

build it, break it, then build it better.

Crow,
A bearing puller that size would be in the hundreds of dollars. I'll check and get a price for you on monday. i did the cut and chisel method on mine as well. If you have a machine shop close by it's cheaper to have someone press them off and have them press a new set on. I have a small set that I use for other things like getting at the pitman arm and the bearings in the transfer case.

Guess I'll do the same cut and chisel method. I inquired at my local Napa and they said they could do it, but sometimes I'd rather do it myself. I would also like to press the bearings on myself but I''d have to get a press first. Maybe it's best that they do this. I really hate having to depend on others as I am skeptical of the job they might do.

Hey Crow:
After you get them cut and chiseled off, I have taken the old retainer ring and used it to drive the new bearing and retainer on, with the axle facing down in a vise. Just close the jaws enough to hold it, and use a large ball-pein hammer inside the axle center on the outside, striking it with a larger hammer. It's kind of crude, but it works. Sarge....

If it aint broke , I can still fix it...

hey sarge
is there a drawing of what needs to come off? it looks like that bearing rides in a deep groove and I can't imagine how you'd get another one in there.

Crow, i wouldn't beat them on with a hammer...pressed means pressed.....anyhow, if you have a little $$$ to spend, run to Harbor Frieght Tools, they have a 20 ton press on sale for $159.99, reg $229.99!!!!if you buy it... you will start using it for things you normally would have done another way....with the amount of work you do on the sammi, and your new welding hobby, the investment might be worth it....plus if you deduct what NAPA would have charged you to press them on, then it actually works out to be less then $159!!!!!!!
