wheel bearing stuck on axle

Recommended Posts

A smaller power tool with a cutoff disk.


The bearing is probably ruined now anyway. So destroying it to save the shaft makes sense.


I think if I had one that stuck, I'd try to find a way to clamp and protect the axle end in a vise. Hammer on the outer race. Or find a big bearing splitter and puller to do it the more conventional way. I have a medium sized set, which works for normally tight ones.

In had that happen once the bearing is still on the axle and funny enuff i still have the axle and bearing we were replacing the axle but ended up putting a spare hub with good bearings in it with the new axle I didn't trust the old hub seeing as how the bearing came out in one piece i figured the hub was wore out and i didn't want to even try to save the old bearing
