Long time TM reader Tracy writes: “Concrete anchor bolts are great for pulling blind bearings — for example, wheel bearings on a motorcycle. It’s hard to get a bearing puller behind these kinds of bearings since there’s usually a spacer pushed up tight against them. Instead, you can insert a concrete anchor like this into the bearing, expand it by tightening the nut, then using a drift from the opposite side of the wheel to tap it out along with the bearing.”
Tracy’s full of kick-ass tips like this, and he posted a dozen or so to the TM photo pool. Check out the pool for more.
