Post rear suspension linkage
I'm replacing the bearings in the rear linkage. Has anyone done them , there is 5 sets of bearings and 2 are doubled. I have removed the single bearing but the double bearing is very tight, is this normal or do they pull out from one end. Any help will be greatfull

Yup just use very long bolt with sockets that fit firm on the bearing race ..simply tighten up and watch it pull through..

takes a few changes of sockets n washers along the way to remove it as it goes deeper in ..

YouTube is your friend on this one if you don't understand. .

BB your km is 08 and u never greased it yet ..maybe I need to come encourage you.

You can take my life , But u can't take my Freedom eh

    Are you talking about the bearings in the pullrod? That's the U shaped linkage.

    If so, the Huskys normally have a machined shoulder in there that the bearings press up against. So you can't press one bearing through until it hits the other bearing and then press them out together. Trying to do so, will wreck shit.

    Instead, my method is to flick out all the rollers, then get a die grinder and cut one of the bearings in half. Once you've done that, then you can get a long socket (or socket and short extension) and put it through the linkage to press the other bearing out.

    Make sense?

    Thanks suspension matters that the link I am referring to. I have found out the hard way with the ridge I the link. I managed to press the bearings over the ridge and out.
    The bearings I've fitted are not as wide as the original bearings e.g the needles are not as long. Is that going to matter much or should I replace them with the original ones.
    Thanks for the reply.
