That system works so well it's worth it's weight in gold. Mugen sells the exact same kit it's around 200 so a little more expensive but well worth it.

sleeve puller - use a zip-tie stuck in the exhaust port, turn the flywheel, voila

flywheel puller - available for $<20 on ebay

Magic motor bearing pulling trick - use your kitchen oven

I have replaced thousands of bearings (literally) with a heatgun . Engine block only needs to be about 300 or so to pop bearings out . Wiggle out with the end of the crank and have the new one ready to go installed on the crank , drop it in, tap it in lightly to seat and cool .

There are ways to goof it up is why I don't recommend doing it yourself unless you are experienced in doing so .


And no I am not just saying this so you send your engine to me cause I really don't make much on bearing exchanges

This is true but with the GRP tool it takes only 5 mins to remove and replace the bearings and they are perfect every time, no hot engine to hold and no hammering involved. The right took makes all the difference.

No way I'm paying 300 for a bearing tool when a stove and a hot mit work better. Spray a little Axe body spray in the case and the bearings slide right in.

For 300 I could send every engine I touch for the next 3 years out to get modded, pinched, and re-bearinged!

no hammer involved in my process and is perfect every time

you must be careful with pullers/installers as they are hard on the races and can ding them or the balls if you tap the slide too hard and pretty much ruin your bearing . also have seen people gall the block where the bearings seat and gouge the aluminum rendering the block useless .
