    Crank bearings

    For those of you who rebuild crankshafts...

    How hard is it to get the PTO bearing (the one with the snap ring) on the crankshaft after it has been rebuilt. What I mean by this is...I have all the parts to rebuild my crank other than this one bearing. If I get the crank rebuilt without it, can I freeze the crank, heat the bearing and slide it on afterwards, or does it need a big press to put the bearing on?

    no need for a press...just heat the bearing and it will slide right on! No need to freeze the crank.
