Drive Side Outer Bearing Race
« on: 23.08. 2020 05:46 »
Just got the engine cases split and have removed the inner bearing from the crankshaft with no problems. But I am unsure as to the method of removing the outer race from the drive side engine case. I don't want to damage anything so thought better to ask before attempting as I was unable to find an answer by searching the forum. 

Cheers Guys

You definitely need to heat the case up good and hot, if its got a rubber mainshaft seal that should be removed first, from memory you can just tap it out? Obviously the correct sized drift/tool would be best to tap it out and keep it straight.

It seems to have a shim/ oil flinger under the outer bearing race so I can't  get behind it to knock it out without damaging the shim. I have noticed two small holes in the cover under the race.  Would these be used for a small pin punch maybe?

    Early engines have this circular oil slinger rather than the seal. The drive sleeve  originally had a scroll to keep the oil back, some engines have the slinger but a plain drive sleeve, a sort of halfway house. Early and later crankcase primary side castings are the same and early slinger versions may be machined to take a  seal. The slinger is dished, so make sure it is replaced the same way round.

 Get the case nice and hot and the race will come out with with just a little bit of a  tap. The two holes are over the outer race so heat up  the case 'til spit dances and use a punch. Replacement is hot cases, bearing race in the freezer, keep it square and it will push into place.

 Swarfy.

stick it on the BBQ bearing facing up
When it gets to around 200C the bearing will usually fall out all by itself
If not grab the cases with a pair of oven mitts and tap the case down on the plate a few time , that will cause difficult ones to fall out

Be careful how hot you go. Don't want distortion or heat treatment abberations. I'd go for 150*C (Jaguar recommended temp for changing valve guides and valve seats in alloy heads). Treat 200 as absolute max. On of those cheap infrared thermometers is invaluable.

Thanks everyone. Got the case around the bearing up to 100 degrees with a heat gun slight tap with a pin punch and it all fell out.
Its always good to ask for advice if not sure about something.   *smile*
