Help, Bearing blowout!!!

Recommended Posts


that looks like a 3 belt blower for the early landlords. I have one in yellow for my B-1. as to parts, I don't know but I have been able to get almost every bearing I've needed for my tractors and attachments at the local bearing supply stores (down here in Tampa it is Motion Ind. but I don't know if that is a national chain)

If had to cut split bearings off a shaft in the past and just used a cut off wheel. Go VERY slow when you think you might be getting close and just give it a touch at a time and a whack with a cold chisel parallel to the shaft to try to split it. The portion stuck inside will have to be pressed out, most likely.

We use a split bearing puller plate and puller for what's left on the shaft and an inside slide puller for what's left of the outer race of the bearing. That way you can read the number on the bearing, take that number to your bearing supply store and get the exact same bearing. You need these 2 tools to do that though.

      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!😁
