Anybody Ever Try This Little Trick?

Postby Red Dave » Mon Apr 17, 2017 5:55 pm

I stumbled on this on another forum, some of you probably saw it too.
I never tried or even heard of it. Anybody ever try it, or anything similar? I saw another youtube that claims to use a paper towel to do much the same thing.

Check it out here:

How well did it work for you?

Hi Dave, yes, I have done that on the pilot bearings of which he speaks. Another trick I have used which would work on his project too, drill a needle punch size hole, or two, opposite each other in line with the outer race and drive the bearing out. The race of the new bearing will cover the holes and prevent dirt from entering, for the most part.....mega takk for the tip.

When you did it was it on a ball bearing? Would it work on a clutch pilot bearing too?

Thanks for responding Ron!

Don't remember where I picked it up, but yeah, BTDT with the grease. Hadn't thought about the paper towel addendum, I'll have to remember that.

(He said "remember"...HAR Har har....)
What do you mean I can't do that?
