Larry if you won't be using it all that often, why not check with one of auto part stores on there loaning program, I don't know of ones in this area that does that but like they used to say 'let you fingers do the walking'.

Dick none of the parts stores carry a bearing seperator for rent or sale. Harbor Freight didn;t have one in stock either. Sold out.

I even tried 3 different pawn shops

Who da figured it be that hard to find one.

A   bearing seperator looks like 2 steelplateshalves that bolt together like a wedge under a bearing or gear and ypur puller fastens to it with bolts or jaws.

I would think you could at least find something that would work and wouldn't cost you and arm & a leg. Did you try the Auto Zone in Centerton (spelling), I have been dealing with them lately and they seem to be pretty helpful, just another shot. What about TSC.

You can order one from Harbor Freight online and have it shipped cheaper than running all over looking for one. I order stuff from HF all the time.

Glad to hear you finally got it off, just don't forget to put a very small amount of anti-seize on the shaft and on the inside of the SW when replacing it. If you haven't every used it before, it can be very messing and a little bit goes a long ways.

 

Isn't it a little cool- I mean cold to be painting.
