Fitting a new bearing

Cut a slot in the old bearing’s inner ring when using it as a sleeve to fit a replacement item.

Remember the first bit of advice you were given for fitting a new bearing on a shaft? Just a few gentle taps with a hammer on an appropriately sized sleeve, or else the whole job can go pear-shaped — literally.
If finding such a sleeve proves tricky, another option is to make use of the worn-out bearing’s inner ring. Tempted? Then one of our readers’ tips is to grind a slot into the old ring, because this makes it much easier to remove the ring from the shaft once the new bearing is safely in place.
