    Thanks for this idea, more cleaner than mine with grease in place of paper and water under the hydraulic press!!!
    Have a nice day.

    Nice hack, not messy like using grease.
    I had to get a pilot bearing out of a crank once and din't have any grease handy so I used margarine.
    Worked like a charm.

    Lol, I just showed this trick to my stepson last week to get the pilot bearing out on his Toyota. He didn`t believe until it started moving. My foster father taught me the trick in the 60`s but using grease. Paper towels and water are significantly less messy.

    How did you remove the outer race of the rear bearing?

    It`s a one-piece sealed bearing so it all comes out as a unit.

    Thank you for this is incredibly useful trick. Now that I have seen it done, it will be etched in my memory forever (or go senile, whichever comes first). Next time my son needs a a practical example for his school physics, I am going to show him this.

    In reality a high percentage of us probably aren't smart; we all know smart folks who don't know not pull an adjustable wrench on the moving jaw.
    We're more likely observant, creative, and dedicated. We certainly are welcoming, generous, congenial too.
    But most of all, everyone is combined mentor and student.

    Well, it looks like your paper towel method worked.

    But your internet video skills really leave something to be desired. The audio levels are all over the map: in some places it is too loud for even my 75 year old ears and then it goes down to the point where you can not be understood even when I jack up the volume all the way. I completely missed the part where you perhaps explained why you did not use the grease that you talked about at the beginning.

    I guess I should be thankful that you did not include the super loud music that most internet video producers seem to think is mandatory. Thanks for that, at least.
