spindle bearings

Recommended Posts

I did one last summer, but I took the spindles to a friend and he pressed them out on his 20 ton press. I think he pressed them out each end. I'm not totally sure, since he also installed the new ones. He has done numerous decks, so he suggested that I give him the parts and let him do the removal and install. I did install some shim washers to eliminate shaft end play and make sure all blades were aligned to the same spacing from the mounting flange.

Brass is the way to go. Please remember to wear eye protection. I once got a pice of brass in my belly and they had a heck of a time finding it, even with x-rays. I looked like I was shot with the blood oozing out. Brass pieces can go flying when you hit that drift. I was watching the Motorcycle show at the firehouse the other evening. Those guys were using a steel rod on a chromed bike. I don't think I would ever do that.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
