Default Bearing

Today i split my case on my g1. The flywheel side bearing wont come off it looks like a washer in front of it , it wont move, do i need a certain pully to remove bearing? And do i need to get the new ones pressed on? Thanks.

Yeah unfortunately u will need a puller and if you don't have a a way to press them back in you will need you will needsee to get them pressed. A way around it if you feel up to it and have a torch, you can heat that side cover up evenly where your bearings are and a lot of time the new bearings will ease on in there or might just need a gingerly few taps. Don't burn yourself and if and when u use a hammer to tap be careful to not bang on the ball bearings or outside ring. That inner ring is what u wanna tap

Hahaha my bad I was meaning the side cover... yeah noooo torching bearings. I was trying to tell making to heat the piece of the engine that you seat the bearings in. We call it a side cover, sorry if I was confusing you that's Mr. Beam talking and he's only 7yrs. Old...Mahalo

You never want to seat a ball bearing by tapping on the inner race.that will cause premature bearing failure.you need to use a pipe,socket or the old bearing to put force on the outer race as you press or tap the bearing into the machined recess.
ball bearings are not design.ed to take lateral load.just radial loads
You could place the bearing in the freezer overnight and then warm the case.then drop the bearing into the case.
