Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1990 Chevy Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 415, 00 miles

I own a 1990 chevrolet 2500, and I am looking for anyone and anyone who knows anyone who may be of some assistance here.

I am trying to replace my rear wheel bearing on both sides of my truck, and I am not having anything positive from the experience.

I talked to a chevy mechanic, and he told me to use a slide hammer, and I used it for a couple of hours and $120 later, and that did not work.

I was told by a few people, that there may be a small hex screw holding it into place, but there is no such evidence of that anywhere inside or outside the axle.

I would like to know how to properly remove that wheel bearing, and install the new one I bought for both sides.

if I was able to attach a picture with this email, I would have done that, but I am still able to send the picture of the problem if you would like to see it.

are you able to have any positive input for me on this matter.

blackjack.

Ok before I can help you need to tell me if you have a full or semi float rear end. So here is pics of two rear end styles from the view of the break drum. Which does yours look like.

We use to take the chunk out a use a long steel rod and put it thru the other side and beat it out carefully. Recently I got a sweet bearing puller off the tool truck that goes thru and latches on then tightens down and won't slip. 20 lbs slide pops anything out if its solid. A little heat never hurts.
