alldayrj, thank you sir! Your hammer and punch method worked great. Now I also know why I kept that old brake rotor. Interesting to note that from the same caster one bearing was all dried out and fused to it's race. The other bearing was still nice and greased up. If the fused dried up one got that way from the heat of the fire it is quite interesting to note how uneven the effects of the heat were. Now to get new bearings in, I've heard that you should keep the old ones so you can put them against the new ones and beat on the old ones to drive the new ones in. Anybody ever tried this method or would this be the time to invest in a press and use it to get the new ones in?
