    Exclamation RE SC Pro Kit recall

    Ok,,to get the bearing out u will need an oven. Yes an oven. I had to go 500 for 45 mins. then still pry like hell. I chose to go back with the GH ceramics due to estimated longterm servicelife. With these ceramics be careful (very careful) when pressing them in. The bracket made by RE needed to have more material at the end due to warpage upon removal. But is ok.

    Using grease will not work as this is NOT a sealed bearing.

    Good Luck

    No there is nothing going on with the ceramic bearings!!!

    The bearings in the Race Engineering Pro SC setup didn't live up to their expectations so they recalled them and are sending everyone new bearings.

    HOSS decided to install my ceramic bearings instead as ceramic are superior to any metal ball bearing. Im doing the same thing on my RE SC Pro setup.

    Use the right sized socket, do it yourself,,on the press and magic happens,,smooth as silk.

    Just to give everyone an idea of what machining costs for the RE Pro SC bracket on the PTO cover,,,,mine was 50 bucks and it bolted right on! Seems to be a neat little deal too. I give it 2 thumbs up so far.
