How do you get old bearings out-can you use a metal rod same dia. of bearing or smaller & pound out end till one bearing comes out & flip over & pound out other bearing?

They tap in pretty easy. Try to find something like a socket that is near the same size O.D. as the bearing or a flat piece of steel bigger than the bearing. You kind of want to avoid pounding on the center of the bearing race. The out diameter is ok or across the whole bearing.

If there are no grease fittings on it, I would pack it full of grease.

Or, You could buy the proper drill bit and a small pipe tap and install grease fittings.

The grease will keep moisture out.

      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!😁
