Don't hit bearings with a hammer unless you want them to fail.waterboy wrote: Next to fit the hub back into the bearing. Having read around I thought I'd line it up carefully and use a hammer. No chance. Hub went just a little off true and consequently bearing started to separate. No way to adjust, the bearing just fell to bits.
Any suggestion of how to fit without repeating on a new bearing?
Use a bearing press found in a workshop or a screw type kit for DIY to fit bearings correctly without damage.
