Default Re: Bad clutch bearing

best way is to order the hub assembled - I would never do that pressing job again

if one has to do it, grease is not a good idea for holding bearings in place unless one doesn't have a mag rotor to stick to the steel to magnetize it enough to hold the bearings, if using grease, it is a good idea to wash in out before using it to keep pads clean when running

as far as actual pressing goes, if a bearing press is not available, one could try a large vise, but the press must be slow and gentle to keep bearings in place

if I didn't have one, I might try a bottle jack pressing a long piece of wood up under the bottom of my workbench
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
