I cant get the bearings out.... I have been hitting them with a sledge hammer most the night - and they aren't moving!

Anyone local got a press they could press the old out and new in?

we've got a press Steve, think it's a bit far for you to come, but let me know if you're stuck

Sure you had a nice big press Ben!

On a serious note though, thank you for the work all them years ago - they still looked brand new, no moisture on them

Just need to refit the hubs and adjust the brakes.


The old cables were stuck solid, I hate to think how long they haven't been working as the more I think about it I remember last November it rolled away and I thought the handbrake wasn't on correctly.
