The pinion gear can easily be separated by the bearing with a vice, socket and hammer or a board, with a hole drilled in the board larger than the pinon, socket and a hammer. The socket OD should be as close as the ID of the bearing. the socket maybe replace with a dowl or something of that nature. I use a socket because it's easlily available for me. Clamp the bearing in the vice, place the socket in the ID of the bearing and tap it out. It's the same with the board except you just lay the bearing down with the pinion in the hole of the board and tap it out.
ohhh..so avet purposely make the pinion sit tight in the bearing..i thought mine was stuck..thanks Bryan..will do that next time..
measure out the pinion gear. i can pull one out and pack it with grease. bearings are easy.
done! without having to pull out the pinion..thanks Alan
if the pinion is made to sit tight in the bearing, i dont mind paying for a new bearing for the low ratio pinion..
it'll make the conversion easier with just a screw driver and an allen wrench..
so that i can perform the conversion quicker..
