    Question Pulling pump bearing and replacing??

    Hi guys, tuning up a new ski for the spring and need a tech tip or two.

    I have new bearing in for an 1996 XP 800 pump and wonder how to remove and replace the old bearings.

    Knock them in? Or pull them out?

    It's better to press them in if you can find a press. You can tap them out with a 12" extension.

    Thanks. But if I push them in, how do I get it out thereafter? Cut them and pull pieces out, or will they slip through the other end?

    You get them out the same way you are about to get the old bearings out!

    There is a stop/ledge machined into the tunnel to locate where the bearings rest. You can't hammer them straight through. They must come out the same way they were installed.

    Slip a 3/8" extension through one bearing, and angle it so it hits the other bearing. Tap it out rotating the extension 180 degrees so you push the bearing out evenly.

    It's really not that hard.

    That worked out very well. Both came out smoothly.
    Last question ( me thinkz) : Should I oil the new bearings before taping them in, or go dry?

    Dry, and make sure you tap on the outer race only. Get a big socket that is slightly smaller than the bearing. They work well.
