I doubt it has a V6 engine, though.

I'd suggest not giving bosco any bad ideas... he seems to not know much about vehicle repair and is seeking proper guidance.

I am sorry crosley, I went back and read all of his post, and maybe he should take it to someone who know how, but if for some reason bosco you try this make sure you mark the old bearings location so you can put it back where it was at before, you can mark it with some yellow marker paint or something like that. Thanks Crosley for pointing this out to me . Cole

Mark the D/L before you pull anything apart!

Can you post a pic of the carrier Brg? On Some of the early style Carrier Brg's you will need to knock out the U-joint to get to the bolt that holds on the yoke next to the Carrier brg, remove the bolt and yoke. Then you can use a press to remove the Brg. Alot of time these are not a TIGHT pressed fit and sometime even pull off by hand.

If it's the later style the Brg, it will just press off after you seperate the D/L. The later style is a tighter pressed fit and you may need use a press or Brg remover to get it off.

If your slip yoke has a Screw on cap don't forget to unscrew it before you try and seperate the D/L's

I woulnd't suggest using a torch ! If you scar up the surface where the Brg is pressed on,the new Brg will spin on the shaft and you WILL have a premature failure.

Again!!! Mark the D/L Before you seperate the 2 pieces! You want to put it back together the same way to avoid any vibration problems.

Are you refering to the "support bearing" for a 2 piece driveshaft? If thats it, it's not too difficult. Loosen the knurled ring from the front shaft and separate the 2 piece driveline. A puller makes removing the support bearing easier, but it can be removed without one, and a little creativity. Be sure to mark all the parts BEFORE separating anything so you can put it back together the same way. Most libraries have repair manuals if you don't have one.

I have replaced several carrier bearings by the roadside with hammer and steel punch (or shaft) to drive them off of and on to the driveshaft.

If you are not sure how the shafts go back together be sure to mark them. If you fail to do that, then all you need to do is line up ALL u-joints with each other so they flex in unison. Wrong line up will cause horrendous noise, vibration, and failure in very short order, sometimes in less than a mile of driving.

If you want to do this job. Here is how the pro's do it.

First separate the shafts. The large knurled collar holds the two shafts together. There is a rubber O-ring inside the collar. This slides off over the splines. Very tight fit and will sometimes break on older shafts.

Most c-bearings are rubber mounted. The rubber is just a molded piece that will pry off with a long bar and some work. Determine front and back. Remove. Then place a bearing pull collar around the metal bearing and press bearing off with a press. A large hammer and chisel will work if no press is available.

Install by sliding new bearing assembly over the splines on the shaft. Then drive it on the press portion of the shaft until it seats against the shaft. I use a long driver. Looks like a piece of pipe with a drive ring welded on.

Replace o-ring and thread collar.

To line up the two shafts for re-assembly. The spline will have a "Skipped tooth" line it up with the grease zerk on the outer piece. Push together.
