what about the big set of bearings on the final drive side where the sprocket is? if it only entails the little set in the cover on the shift side it would be no big deal.
I only replaced the one on the front using the instructions that are in the Snidal Manual and had no leakage on the sprocket side. There is a seal on that side which should keep most of the oil from leaking from the case. You want to install the new bearing removing the seal that faces into the gearbox so it can always be lubricated. There is also a vent mod where you drill a hole through the gearbox inner case half where the filler hole is just below the bottom of the filler plug. I think it is like 1/16" bit you use.
Sorry and at the risk of hijacking this thread, I have a question in preparation of replacing both of my bearings with the sealed bearings.Question...can someone offer opinion/advise as to whether it is common practice to remove the 'inboard' plastic seal from the bearings in order to offer lubrication to the bearings themselves? I think I've read it both ways. Would the sealed bearing be efficient with only the outboard plastic seal or tend to leak after time? I plan on using 90wt.Thanks!
