Driving in rear wheel bearing

Recommended Posts

I'm working on replacing my rear wheel bearings. I put the first bearing in on the drive side and it's stopped with about 1/8 inch left to go. It seems like I'm having to hit it too hard. Would heating up the hub with a small plumbers torch help get it in the last little bit? Thanks in advance!

yes it dont take much heat you could use a heat gun I put the bearings in the freezer first than just warm it up it dont have to be too hot to touch if the bearing is frozen it will almost drop in, you can use the axel too with some spacers to press it in
