I noticed that my rear has a lot of play in the pinion. Whats involved in replacing the bearings? The pattern looks pretty good on the gears so what would be involved in taking it apart and changing the bearings? What about pressing on the bearings?

I am no machanic, but i ask a lot of questions and do the stuff myself.

I had a bearing and seal go out on a model 20. I took it to someone to fix, was like $50. Not sure what all is involved in doing it yourself though.

New bearing is most likely going to require resetting pinion depth. You will have to check the pattern once it is replaced, you will
be very lucky if it goes back together the same. The seal is another matter, no problem there.
