  • Any Tips on removing Deck Lift Shaft Bearing?

    Race from bearing stuck in deck lift shaft. any suggestions on removing bearing race. normally I can tap them out with extended piece of metal.

  • #2
    I have made a tool using some all-thread, nuts, and washers. I had been able to use it in the past to press out the old bearing with a new one. Unfortunately the one I had to do on Monday had no such luck, and I ended up having to replace the shaft. That led to a whole new bag of worms. But I'll save that for another thread.

      what DNC said, but you can use "old" sockets... want a larger one on the outside.. then the one that will just barely fit the inside. tightening will pull the race into the larger socket.

        I go back 6 or 8 inches from the end and drill a hole at an angle to use a long pin punch with a good flat end and you can drive it out.

          I used a long peice of rigid conduit before (the thick walled stuff) to act as my punch. ya do what you have to do!

            I am assuming you are talking about the bearings at the ears of the deck lift shaft and not at the point where the deck lift shaft mounts to the frame.

            If you try to drive these bearings out...you can bend the ear and when you put it all back together, the pin that goes through the two bearings...won't align. And that just sucks.

            I use the same setup mentioned above with sockets, washers and a bolt. No bending required.

              talking about bearings that mount at the end of the shaft, at the frame. Finnally got the race out. Lots of wd40 and a dremel tool and cut the race without damageing the deck lift shaft.

                I use a long piece of pipe. I mash one end so it gets a nice lip on it, and use that end against the bearing race. takes a loooooot of time sometimes, but otherwise it is effect it.

                thought.... anyone use a slide hammer for this? if so, does it work well? I used one made for taking out cam shaft bearings in an engine block, so this gets me curious.

                    I made a "slide hammer" out of an old Jack shaft, and a pinwheel clutch pulley. It works vary well! I think using a long piece of conduit as a punch would work too, until the conduit ends got deformed.

                      By adding a washer and a nut to the setscrew...be sure the washer is big enough to fit inside the bearing...you can use it to pull the bearing.

                        It's sort of like that. I have one of the jack shaft bearings and spacers bolted on one end to make a "safe" handle, as not to smush fingers. I bolted a thick washer on the opposite side, which gets seated behind the bearing race. a few good whacks and the bearing race pops out.

                          How the heck are you attaching that to a deck shaft bearing?

                            Mike...put a washer that will fit inside what you are trying to remove on the end of the slide hammer. Insert the washer inside the bearing then offset it to catch the race that is stuck in the shaft. Smack it with the hammer...then move the washer to the other side of the bearing and do it again. You can move 90 degrees and give it a smack too...eventually the race will come out...or the washer will break.
