I have found it easier to keep the arbors in the shell to do this. But remove the pulley, flinger, and washers then take screwdriver and slide the sleeve between the bearings sideways, that will give you a place to hammer the old ones out.

If you have a six pack handy, and don't mind listening to an "old man" babble; this 40 minute video, shows me encouraging the bearings out of a keyed arbor (IE not splined)...note - the spacers do get a tad distorted this way!

      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!😁
