So I am trying to get the rear end ready for media blasting, I have removed all the internals from the rear end. The only thing that is left are the wheel bearings, I got the seals out but I have no idea how to get the bearings out and I dont want to blast with them in there and ruin them. Any ideas or suggestions for removing the real bearings from my 55 century?

Thanks

You need a bearing puller and later an installer tool. You maybe able to "borrow" one or rent one from one of chain parts stores. You should install new bearings after the blasting. Chances are the old ones will suffer damage on removal as it usually takes vigorous action with the puller to get them out.

Thanks for the quick response, I will try to get a bearing puller tool locally. This is my spare rear end so Im not too worried about breaking the bearings but Id prefer to keep them intact.

Will post pic and updates in my build thread

Thanks
