Trying to get front wheel bearings out of the wheel.
I have a 1985 LTD if you didn't figure that out from my handle.
I am slowly working on a rebuild of my front end.
Bearings, brake pads, new fork seals, rebuild front calipers, clean the Trac system, gently resurface the disks, clean and repaint wheel and calipers ETC
When all that is done, and I am ready to slip the wheel in place, I will buy a new tire.
Probably Dunlop E4
The problem I am having is getting the front wheel bearings out. I researched and found the split bolt technique, but after an hour of trying that and trying to improve my device. The damn bearing is exactly where it was before I started. It hasn't moved at all.
What next?? Try the bolt and heat on the wheel? I don't DARE damage my wheel.
I am ready to take my shaft tool with a diamond cutter and cut the bearing apart inside the wheel
Any one got any secrets they will share?
