This blind hole bearing/seal puller kit was a necessary purchase while working on my '85 ATC 250sx trike project when it came time to remove the rear differential pinion bearing. This bearing sits in a pocket inside the aluminum housing and there is literally no way to easily remove it without this special tool.
eBay came to the rescue with this reasonably priced (about $40 CDN) kit. It features 4 different sized clamps that lock onto the far side of the inner bearing race as you tighten the adjusting bolt. The 4 clamp sizes are 10-14mm; 15-19mm; 18-25mm; and 25-32mm.
With the jaws expanded and tight you are ready to pull the bearing.
You simply screw on the slide hammer and knock out the stubborn bearing.
This tool has also proved very effective while repairing Honda Snowblower Crawler Drive gear boxes for removing the centre bearing which sits in a blind pocket. Great tool and reasonably priced.
