Re: Cutlass bearing replacement

Why don't you just bed bearings on epoxy as a clearance fit? no press required. This is done on many bearing installations. Removal is also easier, if it's in a metal carrier just heat the carrier and the epoxy softens, if it's in GRP or wood you can coat the bearing in release wax before it's fitted then it can be split away from the carrier with a sharp narrow chisel. This method is proven to be quick, easy and reliable.
