Can you use a threadless headset on threaded forks?

Unlikely. To set the bearing preload on the threadless headset you'd need to keep the top race and locknut from the threaded fork. And if the threaded fork was properly fitted to begin with it's unlikely that you have enough threads protruding to have room enough for that. Threaded headsets are still easily available, and not very expensive, so there's little point in doing builds like this.

How do you replace rear wheel bearings in a Ford Aspire?

Ok, this i fairly easy. First you need to jack up the car and remove the tire. There will be a cap in the middle of the brake drum you need to remove this. A chisel and hammer work very well. Once this is off you should see the which is a threaded post coming out. On this there should be a nut, You need to remove this nut. Before you can do that you need to remove the coder pin and nut that are over it. once you have the nut off the wheel bearing should come out when you pull the drum off. you do have to pry the drum off, this may be a challenge so just be careful not to hurt the drum. When you take the drum off go to a work bench. The nest step is to remove the inner wheel bearing, race, and seal, you also have to remove the bearing race for the wheel bearing. first is the seal this will be on the inside of the drum in the center. Remove this with a flat head screwdriver. Next take a chisel and hammer and pop out the inner bearing, Nest remove the races, use the and chisel and the races should be easy to see just pound them out. Now wipe out were the bearings go. Now you install the new bearings and races. First you must install the races which should be included with the bearings. To do this place the race in the hole. Now a bearing driver is the best but if you have one you can use a socket that is the same size as the race. a large mallet pound the race in Make sure to get it all of the way down. do not scratch the inner surface of the race this could cause your bearings to fail Now you do the same for the other race. Nest you need to grease the bearings before they are installed (look up instructions on how to hand pack a bearing if you do not have a bearing packer). Ok the inner bearing will set down inside of the race, nest you need to put the seal in on the inner side. Make sure this is all the way down all of the way around. The bearing will not stay in its race as of right now. Now you need to go back to the car and place the drum back on the spindle. Place the bearing over the and into its race. The next part is very important you need to pre load the bearing. You do this by the nut WHILE TURING THE DRUM AT THE SAME TIME it gets hard to turn the drum now unsrew the nut slightly the drum should turn eaisly but shouldn't be loose. Nest install the catle nut and codder pin. Now you need to reinstall the cap over the whoel thing but be careful not to bend the cap in or it will not seal and dirt may get into the bearing causeing premature failure. Now put the wheels back on and torque the studs. Lower the car and drive take it for a drive. When you get back to make sure you got the nut on tight enough grab the top of the wheel and push it in and pull it back towards you. If you feel it clunk or hear it then you need to remove everything back to the nut and tighten it a few turns. That's it hope it works out for you.

How to Remove seized bearing?

Depends on where the bearing is - if the bearing is on a shaft and the balls are gone and all that is left is the race you might be able to cut either side of the race and snap it off with a chisel. If it's not that, you might specify exactly where the bearing is that you want to remove.

Which is harder in ball bearing inner race or outer race or ball?


How do you install wheel bearings for 1992 Honda accord lx 4 dr manual trans with rear abs?

Both the front and rear wheel bearings need to be pressed out of the steering knuckle / hub assembly. As for the front bearings, you'll need to remove the steering knuckle, (part connected to upper and lower ball joints, and has hub attached) which is done by removing the axle nut, caliper, and detaching from upper and lower ball joints. (Use ball joint fork, try not to tar the boot, if torn its recommended to replace) After the knuckle is removed you need to find a way to prop it up so that the bearing can be pressed out from the back. I personally welded a jig from 3/8" square tubing but there are many ways this can be done. Just remember it needs to be sturdy enough to hold up to the press. Use a socket or piece of tubing wide enough to press the bearing from the outer race only as to not damage the old bearing. If your brakes could use a swap, now is the time BEFORE you press the new bearing in. The back bearings are along the same line. Questions or Comments:

Incorrect packing of bearing grease or incorrect torque. Also make sure to replace the bearing race, as it may be scored. CORRECT ANSWER- you need to replace the knuckle and the wheel bearing

What is a quill bearing?

A quill bearing is a bearing that instead of having roller bearings, it has long thin rollers shaped like a toothpick. They are commonly used in transmissions and power machinery. It is basically a "needle bearing". The bearing has a hard outer shell which is considered the outer race, a series of needle bearings inside the shell that usually ride directly on a hardened shaft, therefore not needing a inner race as a typical roller bearing has.

The horn is honking because the lower bearing in your steering column and the contacts are touching when you turn the wheel. It will need to be taken apart but unfortunatly thet bearing and race is no longer available from VW. Get a good mechanic and he will find somthing that will work. Good luck

They may not all be the same, but in general - tap off the hub cap remove the split pin that goes throught the first nut you see undo the nut pull off the wheel complete with bearings pick out the inner race of the outer bearing with a suitable punch through the centre hole punch out the outer race of the inner bearing turn the wheel over and punch out the outer race of the outer bearing tap a new outer bearing outer race into place turn the wheel over and tap a new inner bearing outer race into place insert the inner bearing inner race into place put wheel onto axle put inner race of outer bearing into place screw the nut on tighten nut securely to push all bearings into place, then back off so that it's just slightly loose. Put split ping back Replace hub cap. But you may not need to replace all the bearings because they may not all have gone. Check what you need to buy first.

Front wheel hub bearings for a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria?

Should be the same as '96. You can buy the bearings with the race at your local auto parts. Remove the wheel, caliper, and rotor. The bearings are in the rotor hub assembly. The front bearing comes out very easy ( nut, bearing lock, washer, then bearing ) The race if it has to be changed has to be punched out with a punch ( brass works good ) and to install there is a tool, but I just hammer the new one in using the old one as a guide ( or punch ). The rear bearing, you have to remove the grease seal with a screwdriver the just slide the bearing out. Same thing to remove the race. If the race on both bearings is good, no need to replace. But they have to be good. Repack with wheel bearing grease, don't over pak. New seal on back, then re-assemble. More questions, send me a note on my message board. And, do not over tighten the locking nut. Spin the rotor as you tighten the nut, snug with no play will do.

How do you replace hub bearing on 95 Buick reveria supercharge?

You have to remove the entire wheel assembly to get to the hub bearing, take the old hub bearing out along with the race, pount the new race in, grease the new hub bearing, put that in, then reassemble. If you're not sure how to do this, either leave it to a pro, or buy yourself a Chilton or Haynes manual.

How do you replace the input shaft bearing on FM146?

You have to be able to pull the old bearing and replace it with the input shaft in place (it takes a special puller and installer). Not being able to do that (like me), the transmission needs to be almost totally disassembled to remove the shaft/bearing from the case. There are clearance issues with the countershaft and mainshaft that cause this. If you go that way you still need a bearing splitter and press to get the bearing off and press the new one on. Because you have taken the front cover off the transmission, you will have to do some shimming between the case and outer bearing race.
