Questions?? BIG PROBLEM!!! MERV

i got the outer race of the bigger bearing STUCK IN MY rear HR aluminum knuckle..

I was replacing all my bearing in my merv but this one was really bad so i smash it with a hummer. half part cames out but the outer race got stuck in there

How do i get it off?

ps: does any have 1 rear HR aluminum laying around that could sell cheap to me? Im from portugal btw, got paypal ready.

Thank you

You could try to dremel it out. (rotary cutoff tool if they dont have dremel in Portugal) Just cut the race carefully down to the knuckle, then make another cut somewhere else on the race, and it should in theory just fall out. You may not even need to make the 2nd cut.

Yeah, dremels are infinitely useful, r/c or not. Again, I just want to point out, I've never tried what I described, but it should do the trick. Remove some of the race just by making a cut through it, and the ring should be able to shrink and slip right out. (I hope I'm explaining this well enough that you understand what I mean) I know how small those knuckles are, so I don't imagine anything else really fitting in there to cut it besides a dremel.

Part of the problem is the hubs are machined before they are annodized and that annodized coating adds thickness so bearings are a tight fit , take off the annodizing and I bet the bearings come out easy .
