Hi all

I need to remove the bottom bearing on the steering yoke of my D10

I am not sure if it is on a taper or just a tight fit, would using a bit of heat help in removal or could it damage the stem?

Anyone have a best method on removal?

Hi Sunny

Appreciate your response but I need to remove the old bearing first as badly pitted and scored, my question was how best to remove.

Like your idea however of cleaning it up with a scourer before reassemble

As far as I remember from doing a D7 many moons ago. It is an interference fit on the stem. A bit of heat and some careful leverage should get it moving.
