Advice for replacing front bearing on toplaoder
« on: March 10, 2019, 08:59:30 PM »
Hi All,

I need to replace the input shaft bearing on my toploader. I had hoped to do it myself but I have come to realise that I think I was rather naive. I thought there were two clips holding the bearing in place and once these were removed the bearing could be slid off. I removed one but can't find a second, and the bearing won't budge so I'm guessing the bearing is friction held to the input shaft. Is this something I need to go to a professional for? And if so, any recommendations for places in Brisbane?

Thank you for any advice.

A bearing puller or press is all you'll need ---and whiley ya dare, ya might as well go through the rest of the box -linkages , seals etc
Mal Wood could be an option for repairs , parts and maintenance to -- toploaders, single rails, T5, TKO, and T56

For those who care, I went to A1 Gearbox. They were great. Highly recommend.
