MEANING---DRIVE (HARD AND FAST) THE TIGHT FITTING DRIVER INTO THE HOLE

IF YOU HAVE IT 100% PACKED WITH GREASE---THE GREASE MUST GET OUT SOMEHOW. SO IT PUSHES THE PILOT OUT

WHAT THE TIGHT DRIVER MEANS IS---WHATEVER FITS THE "WHATEVER SIZE" INSIDE HOLE IN THE PILOT AND IS TIGHT. BUT IT WILL STILL SLIDE IN THE HOLE

SOME EXAMPLES BELOW

--OF COURSE THESE ARE DIFFERENT SIZES---WE DON'T KNOW THE HOLE SIZE YOU HAVE

A FOOT LONG PIECE OF BROOM HANDLE

A 1/2 DRIVE RATCHET EXTENSION

A 3/8 DRIVE RATCHET EXTENSION

ANY SORTA SOLID ROD

IF NOTHING ELSE---FIND THE PERFECT SIZE DEEP SOCKET. PACK THE SOCKET FULL AND TIGHT WITH TIN FOIL WITH A HAMMER AND PUNCH. NOW IT'S THE PERFECT SIZED "SOLID ROD". DRIVER!

IF THE INSIDE IS SLIGHTLY CHEWED UP---DRIVE THE DRIVER IN IT A FEW TIMES TO SORTA STRAIGHTEN IT BACK OUT

. THEN DO THE GREASE THING, AS IN THE VIDEO!

DID YOU SEE THE VIDEO?

AUTO PARTS STORE. THIS HAPPENS TO BE A PIC AT ADVANCE AUTO

TRY TO "SNATCH IT OUT" FIRST, BEFORE YOU SPEND ANY $$$

YOU CAN ALSO USE "CANNED AIR" LIKE YOU DUST OFF YOUR COMPUTER WITH. JUST TURN THE CAN UPSIDE DOWN AND SQUIRT!

I'D WEAR GLOVES AND SAFETY GLASSES. THIS IS "INSTANT FROSTBITE" IF YOU START SQUIRTING YOURSELF BY ACCIDENT!

DOES IT LOOK LIKE MY IMPROVISED PULLER WILL WORK?

IN MY PIC

THE "RING" REPRESENTS THE RACE PART OF YOUR BEARING (THAT YOU WANT OUT)

FOR MY "VERSION" TO WORK---YOU MUST SELECT 2 BOLTS THAT THEIR HEADS WILL "BUTT" AND AT THE SAME TIME. HOLD BEHIND THE RACE SNUGLY

YOU CAN USE WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOMETHING SIMILAR TO WHAT I HAVE "WHIPPED TOGETHER"

A QUICK. SNATCH. JERK! ON THE CHAIN SHOULD PULL THE RACE OUT OF THE FLYWHEEL

MY WIFE PRETENDS TO BE THE FLYWHEEL (HOLDING THE RING [THE RACE]

I YANK ON THE BIG SOCKET SOCKET FORWARD

WHEN I "RUN OUT OF CHAIN" THE RACE GETS PULLED OUT!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW?
