Having obtained new bearings, I am now faced with how to reinstall without a shop press. Even before I could use it, I would have to come up with some type of sleeve that would only press on the inner ring and not on the shields. How about a 1/2” impact socket? . So if it’s an “Impact Socket”, why not try to “Impact” it into place?
A little grease to ease the installation.
Place the bearing on the shaft.
1/2” Drive Impact Socket
Rinse & Repeat
