    my gravely has tapered roller bearings in cast iron housings. I got this mower used and had to put one in and it was a royal PITA. Now i got one getting loose on the discharge side. It is not bad yet just a little play, but none the less i am going to have to repalce it in the near future. So my question, what tools and or methods are used for removing and installing the cones?? My technique last time was crude and luck had it that i didnt screw up the spindle.. So educate me on changing the cone???

    Thanks guys!! snapper

    Hammer and a punch to drive out the races. Brass punch or brass hammer to drive back in new ones.
