Re: Gear bearings

Marc, If you don't have one, procure a repair manual from Frank Witkowski. This will cover the repair in question. Also, look in the Technical Page on the left side of the screen, in the Maintenance heading select U-Joint Rebuild. This will give you an Idea of what needs to be done. New rubber balls can be purchased from Frank also.

Re: Gear bearings

Provided you have a competent auto parts house in your area, you can bring your bearing in and they can measure the outside, inside, and width and will be able to match it with one on the shelf or order one for you.

Re: Gear bearings

Sorry, I was thinking you were asking in your first post about transmission bearings. If you should need bearings, you most likely can get them at the auto parts places.
