How To Remove Pressed-on Bearings – EricTheCarGuy I know this one does not cover an entire procedure but it just worked out this way. I did however want to show how to remove this type of bearing should you run into it. I didn’t show the installation for 2 reasons on this, first, I just didn’t have the time to shoot it, and second I recommend pressing new bearings on rather than hammering them into place (I don’t have a press yet). I would say that hammering them is OK but you risk damage to the bearing and if that happens it is a lot of work and more money to fix it.

Toilet syphons are normally reliable, but the diaphragm inside of the syphon can eventually fail. Replacing the syphon on a high level or low level toilet is much easier than on a close coupled toilet. Here we are replacing a standard toilet syphon with a Dudley Turbo 88 syphon, which is a dual flush (so it saves water) and also is in two parts so the next time you need to replace the syphon diaphragm it is much easier.

    I removí all of that and still leaking oil

  • Claude Rains says:

    I had the same idea with cut off disk, till I found out a plasma cutter does a better job.
    A great way to install bearings is warm the bearing up and use freon on the shaft. It slides right on.

  • MRSBA7 says:

    Great video Erick, but how you do that when the place si small and tight? most of bearings are in small spaces.

  • Ed Gamboa says:

    You just reminded me of some crane work I did, I didn’t consider the heat treatment, oh boy.

  • cpumaster1989 says:

    If you have an impala or grand prix or any gm car with traction control system and you seem to be getting issues with it activating for no reason or that it says service it.. and that you hear squeaking or groaning down the road have the bearings replaced in the front.. Mine needs done soon.

  • freakin1random says:

    Note to self, use smaller cut-off wheel lol.

  • tom rodgers says:

    yh and un temper the shaft??? whos dumb? guess its not your own cars you work on but unfortunate customers ones

  • MrNeverseeme says:

    you are a dumb ass if you set the shaft vertical and heat the seal sleeve with an oxy acetylene torch evenly all the way around it should drop off its only 1 to 1 and a half thousand press fit …once that is completed cut the roller cage of the taper roller bearing with an oxy acetylene torch drop off all the rollers then set the shaft once again vertical heat the bearing cone or inner race to be technical evenly around it should also drop off

    you are doing a great work man . i also do same but mostly on heavy machines like tractors here in india . i’ll use this technique on some bearings..thanks

  • James Musnicki says:

    Awesome video, helped me change out my bearing in my 67 Mustang.

  • Craig Arndt says:

    I did it the same way, great video. Used a 20 ton harbor freight press and no more oil leaking!

  • Luke Moore says:

    Does eric the car guy have a press?

  • ZamolxisReborn says:

    dude, you’re a menace with that grinder.
    i like your other videos, though.

  • inkmetal85 says:

    When cutting towards the axle, be careful not to nick the axle because that will cause a stress fracture point and can fail in the future. Its better to grind the inner race and sleeve close to the axle and then use a chisel to loosen the race and sleeve

  • 914andystrong says:

    how about bearing puller

  • DoTheNeedful says:

    On my truck you can hear the bearing making a noise. It takes a little deducing to try and figure out which side it’s coming from, but shouldn’t be too hard if you actually have a bearing going out. I heard mine from inside the truck.

  • 5annent says:

    Eric ur the man hommie!

  • endsupremacy2010 says:

    If they are pressed on, how can you put the new ones on?

  • otherstuffbybob says:

    Eric THANKS…..I just replaced both my wheel bearings on my Grand Cherokee. I Would have never even attempted taking out my axles until I saw your video. Napa pressed on my new wheel bearings and the price included cutting off the old ones. Thanks again for the video!!!!!!!

  • 8tyman8 says:

    something i do is when cutting a bearing is 1 tape the shaft to give you that extra protection against nicking the shaft and i have some one spray water from a spray bottle to help reduce the chance of the steel losing its temper

  • aode06 says:

    harbor freight has a sale on shop presses. Id get one, more uses than 1

  • you124tube1 says:

    Never thought watching 23 minutes of a video on plumbing techniques would do it for me. Have to say, brilliant – saved me a fortune and gave me the confidence to do the job, even down to angle grinding the wingnuts. Many thanks

  • mistermagoo60 says:

    Excellent information thank you. I just wish l didn’t have to take cistern and everything else off to fix it!!

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    You are welcome.
    Thanks for the comment ;-)

  • gezarzia says:

    Thanks for the video ! I’ve been trying to get a plumber in for weeks and none are interested and those that quoted wanted an outrageous sum, so I watched video, went down to my local plumbers merchant paid £23 for Dudley Turbo88 and close coupling kit, came home and 45 minutes later dual flushing loo! Wife was impressed! Thanks once again,keep up the good work.

    ps didnt need to worry about leaving messages for the plimber in the unflushed bowl!

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    Glad it helped, thanks for the comment ;-)

  • StuartWalkerPhoto says:

    Thanks for this video. It helped me to replace our faulty siphon with a Dudley Turbo unit today :-)

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    It definitely sounds like the syphon diaphragm. If your syphon splits you can just change the diaphragm, if not you are better off getting a new one.

  • krznaa rana says:

    Thanx for the video.. My toilet stops flushing too. Its flush sometime but dont most of the time. Do u think its a syphon i need to change or its something else?

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    You are welcome.
    Yes, it is a good job you checked ;-)

  • afmfifgh says:

    Thanks for the reply, as ever really helpful!

    I suspect what has happened is that they have fallen out of the packaging as from what I can see they should have been supplied. I will look into ordering replacements – good job I checked before removing the toilet!!!!

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    It is a flanged backnut and washer, I am not certain of the size without checking but I think it’s 1 1/2 inches. They have them on the mytub website for 88p for both, or your local plumbers will have them, just tell them what it’s for to get the correct size or measure it ;-)

  • afmfifgh says:

    Hi, daft simple question. Does the washer and nut at 11.41 have a name? I bought the Dudley Syphon after seeing this video but for some reason it hasn’t come with the nut and washer. I have everything else for the job bar those and can’t seem to find them online. Your videos are helping me out massively! Also saving me a packet by not having to get plumbers etc in! Cheers!

  • Plumber Hillsborough says:

    Thank you for uploading it in youtube it helps a lot.

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    No problem at all ;-)
    Good luck with the DIY 

  • andyeilio says:

    Sorry about that, my mistake, thanks for the advice, its very gratefully appreciated. I am now considering my next DIY tasks, I have a leaking radiator valve downstairs, and in the airing cupboard, and also a shower that hasn’t worked for a while, and I wonder if it is just a simple electrical problem, anyway, I have started looking through your videos, off now to continue watching/browsing. Thanks again.

  • ultimatehandyman says:

    No, I am not Tom. You might be confusing me with tomplum (top guy). If you don’t remove the cistern and fix it you will be wasting water.
    You don’t need a new syphon, just stop the washer from leaking. If it’s been over tightened you can seal the washer with silicone.
