Post subject:  Rear sprocket hub bearing tool

I had need to replace the two bearings in the rear brake housing. One has to be inserted at the bottom of a long(ish) steel tube. I had to make a drift on my lathe to allow the bearing to be inserted squarely by the outer edge.
If any uk paso owners need to borrow this in the future I'm happy to post it to you if you pay the postage ( don't forget to return it!) Probably too costly to do this over the water- cheaper to ask someone to make it.

Sorry Frank it's not you its me. I meant the rear sprocket hub. I will try to change the title. No photo but there's as steel tube cast or inserted Into the aluminium sprocket hub carrier. The outer bearing needs to be pushed about 10cm down the tube. No easy unless you have a tool or someone who's made one, willing to lend it to you if you need it! (That's me)
Best regards

Posted about these bearings before. It will make things much easier if the sprocket carrier is heated to about 100°C before drifting out the bearings. When I did this I was holding the carrier in my hand, placed a socket on the bearing and gave it a pounding with the hammer. Whoosh - out it came.
