Default wheel bearing

I have a 91 EZGO with a bad right rear wheel bearing.
How do I find out what bearing I have and where I can get a replacement.
Is this something I can pick up at a local Advance Auto?

I believe it should be a 6007 bearing. Check the side of the race for the number. You can get it from EZGO or you can probably get it locally at a bearing supply house.

I've got some bearings on the way. At first I thought I could get the axle out easily and hopefully have it fixed yesterday afternoon. The axle is being a pain to get out so I've got to figure out how to get the axle out.

My axle isn't threaded to get any kind of slide hammer in there. I think we have figured out how to make rudimentary slide hammer and make it work. I'll keep you posted.

Slide the drum back on with the inside facing out and put the nut on the end of the axle. Then use a dead blow hammer to to hit the face of the drum to drive the axle out.



There are more instructions in this thread.

Hope that helps you.

The 91 Marathon is different, if the axle tube bolts onto the differential you may have to to remove the tube to remove the axle...... there should be an illustration around here somewhere showing how that axle comes out.

I'll verify at lunch today but it seems like the axle tube is part of the rear differential. I don't recall it bolting to it but I will take a look.

The reverse hub trick is a great idea. This morning before work I hooked a short chain between two lugs and uses a heavy crow bar to simulate a slide hammer but I didn't make much progress before I had to go to work.

I went out during lunch and it doesn't look like my axle tube is bolted to the differential.
There is what appears to be some kind of set screw on top of the passenger side axle tube but nothing bolting it to the differential.
I do not see the set screw looking thing on the drivers side.

I don't have a dead blow hammer so I reversed the hub and used a long 2X4 and tapped the 2X4 with my ax and almost got the axle out. I'll get it out the rest of the way after work.

I went ahead and sprayed both sets of U bolts with some liquid wrench in case I decide to lift it :-) Once I finish all the maintenance and repairs, I expect my next upgrade will be replacing the cables.

The rear diff looks moist around the bottom, I'll go ahead and change the fluid there as well.

Default Re: wheel bearing

ok, I did something stupid.
My parts came in today, my bearings, seals and clips.
I put in the seal, put in the first clip and then the bearing.....
Then I realized I forgot to put in the axle!
Any tricks for getting the bearing back out without destroying it?
I've tried using a seal puller to tap around in it to try but that won't work, or hasn't yet.
I don't have any kind of wheel puller though I can likely borrow/rent/buy one if needed.
Any other ideas?
