I am about to replace the bearings in my MT with Timken bearings and have a couple of questions.
1) I was able to disassemble most of the way pretty easily. However I have some parts of the bearings that are "stuck" (the tapered pieces that the roller bearings fit into - forgive me that I don't know what it's called. Sleeve?) I presume these are pressed into the mount housing? How should I remove them for replacement?
2) the bearing at the bottom of the mount - the roller part won't come out. I don't know what's keeping it in but I don't want to brute force it and potentially damage things. I loosened the two set screws on the round plate immediately below but that doesn't appear to have done anything.
Some time ago I *thought* I came upon a page with detailed pictures and descriptions but can't seem to find it now. Would appreciate some help with this. Thanks!
EDIT: Never mind - I understand now.
