    Will this press be sufficient for removing bearings on S/C?

    Are most of you using a press to install and remove the bearings when rebuilding S/Cers?

    If so, what are your thoughts on this 1 ton press?

    ...or would I need to step up to this press?

    Hmm, not looking like it will be tall enough to press the shaft out of the housing. What do all of you do?

    Jerry is the man but I realized it would be good to have in my knowledge base so I am going to rebuild it. I've already got the charger disassembled down to the retaining disc and now just waiting on my rebuild kit with a couple of needed tools to arrive on Friday. I've needed a small press for some time now so I am springing for the proprietary tools on this job because I can tell you with certainty that it won't be the only time I rebuild one. I will just use my 20 ton press this go around. I worked as an IMSA race team mechanic for years and have always done my own work (shy of machining) so this isn't my first rodeo. I've got everything (and every tool) I need other than the mounting plate and the 4 pronged socket to remove the retaining disc. My 11 year old could rebuild this.

    Thanks,
    CCW

    I've just always used my 20 ton and have never really needed a bench top press so I really wanted to spend less on this particular tool to save towards mods.

    I'm not fond of wasting $$$ either but when it comes to tools, buy quality!

    Just use your 20 ton. No need for a bench top model if you already own a 20 ton. I've used my 12 ton and the 20 ton at work to rebuild them.

    A harbor freight press will work just as good as any other press. It's a press for crying out loud. Some tools don't need to be American made to get the job done. Hell our SeaDoos arent even American made!
