New Steering Bellcrank Repair Kit (1 required per vehicle) – Part#: 915762
Q: On the GPW do the O rings go on the bottom of the bearing and on top of the bearing or should I set washer, O ring bearing to bearing, then O ring, then slotted washer?
- A: The O ring is the grease seal so I would put that on the outside.
Q: I have the 3/4″ Bellcrank (down facing ball) and your kit. Do I recess the two caged needle bearings inside the bellcrank hub deep enough to allow the grease seals to be flush with the outer hub surface, or a bit proud of the surface? It appears that if I recess them too far, I will cover, or obstruct, the grease fitting port.
- A: They stick out just a bit so you shouldn’t have any trouble.
Q: I ordered the kit, but the washer was missing. Can I order just the washer?
- A: Please call us toll free. We can help you.
Q: Hi, just trying to get the old pin out in order to get the shaft out. Heated it, drilled it, hammered it with a punch, tried the zip gun, nothing will do. Any suggestions to get the pin and shaft out? I didn’t try dynamite…
- A: It is tapered so make sure you are driving it out the correct way. It will only press out one direction.
Q: Finally got the taper pin out, is the 3/4″ shaft with the castle nut that holds the Bell Crank part # 915762 also tapered? If not which way would you beat it out, from the top or the bottom?
- A: I believe the taper goes down. You need to drive it out from the small side.
