HOMEMADE GIMBAL BEARING DRIVER
September 17th, , Have a marina do the job, they can be a real b1tch!! I then tried my homemade puller that I described at the beginning of the thread, had the bearing in my hand inside of 2 minutes. If you are real lucky the housing is already installed with the notches facing out and all you would need to do is replace the cartridge bearing. I have also been trying to find a way to make a puller myself instead of buying one since they are really expensive. About Us Contact Us Password Please enter a password for your user account.
