carrier bearing

well...I'm gonna buy a new bearing and have it pressed on hopefully...poeple are telling me it can be done...the old bearing hardly spun, it needed replaced.


Here are some pics of part of my driveshaft where the bearing goes on...Anyone else's driveshaft look like this, when putting a new bearing on?

I've never seen one that bad, but hey, Duct Tape and a bit of WD-40 and it'll be good as new....


In a while, Chet.

Yee haw !

It almost looks like the inner race might be welded to the shaft in that case there will be alot more work .

It is really hard to tell from pix.

Hopefully it will just pop right off.

keep us posted

Usually, the series is the type of truck it is, as in C-10, C20 and so on.

the piece that is still on the shaft (where your finger is pointing) is the inner race of the carrier bearing. There is also a retaining ring that you can easily split with a hand chisel and hammer and knock off. Those 2 pieces MUST come off before pressing on the new one! LOL



Do you have an air chisel? If so, use a small torch and heat the race then put the chisel in the ball groove and try hammering it off the shaft. If it comes off, clean the shaft good and lightly sand the shaft with some fine paper or emry cloth. Just get it good and clean, then use the pipe to tap on the new one or just break down and carry it into a machine shop and have them press the race off and install the new one for ya.
