Re: Rear wheel bearing fitting..right or wrong..

not watched the vid but a rear drum does get very hot in use so not much difference than putting in the oven
its the same as a ring gear you have to heat it up before fitting
only used once i bought a 6 ton press just for this sort of job it will see me out and hope the 50-60 i laid out pays for its self
as to youtube videos for repairs just because its not done the right way does not mean its not correct but from the post above a correct size socket would have been better than a chisel
