question regarding tear down of B&G

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of tearing down the engine and noticed that the bearing on PTO side blocks the timing mark. this may be a stupid question, but when i reinstall this crank, do i have to line those marks up before i install the bearing? if so do i heat the bearing so it will slip back on the crank easier?

Yes, you do and I did not have to heat my bearing up. Ryan

Careful when you heat the bearing.... I wonder if you can just put it in a 350 degree oven for a while.

when i was working, and we had to rebuild a pump at work, we would always put the bearing on top of a steam line to heat them up, don't have that option at home...went to libary to get maual on motor to decide how far to tear it down..the motor is very clean, i just wanted most part off of it so i cold glass bead the motor
