Installing Front Crankshaft Bearing

Tools Needed: 41mm socket or Tommy bar and hammer

Set the flywheel end of the crank down on a flat piece of wood. The front bearing is the same as the rear bearing, a #208.

Use a pick or similar tool to remove bearing dust seals. I leave one seal on .

Place the bearing sealed side up on the crank end. I have the sealed side out to act as a oil seal and keep timing gear debris from contaminating the bearing.

Use the 41mm socket or...

...Tommy bar on the inside race along with hammer to seat the bearing. Use the 12, 6, 9 and 3 o'clock pattern to drive the bearing to its seat.
