    Lightbulb Supercharger bearing press.

    Would this press be suitable for pressing the bearings into the supercharger?

    u should never press beat bang or anything else on the bearing into any charger housing.......remove them ok....... using the freezer and a heat gun will assemble the charger without any tools at all thus not chancing the damaging of any bearings..........high RPMs r dangerous when u start pressing & stressing any bearing involved in that job...................FACT!

    Yeah all the ones ive ever done slide in an out easily with just a few taps with the tool, the tool hits the outer race so its ok... the one you push on the shaft with the proper tool uses the inside race so thats good as well, pushing the whole bearing/clutch into the housing takes no effort at all

    as long as u know how and in which order it goes back together............. what needs heat and what needs chilled is obvious

    chill a shaft & heat a bearing... assemble
    chill a bearing & heat a wheel side case.... assemble
    chill shaft & bearing combo heat rear side case thru to front
    slip chilled shaft and bearing into case with all required parts

    done bearings & shaft installed with no beating banging or stressing anything...BET!!!!!!!

    With the correct tools - procedure.... you can build a charger properly with a press, and not stress or freeze a thing.

    Heating and cooling just adds more unnecessary complication. As stated, use the correct tools and procedures and there is no stress on the bearing whatsoever. Hammering is of course disastrous ��

    Oh. and as for the press, that's exactly the same as I have.
