Default Bearing installer tool

Hello, does anyone know of a good bearing istaller tool that work for Picco based .12 engines with 6mm front bearing?
Almost all tools (Hudy/grp/sirio/nova etc) are for 7mm crankshafts and cant be used for the picco .12.

Thanks

You dont need the tool, just heat it.up in an oven to 350F, leave in for 15 minutes and the bearing will just fall off on its own. Put the crank in the bearing when you pull.it out, .you'll see.why.

just heat it up and use something soft to tap it out. then, the crankshaft to press it in. easy peasy after an oven heating. oven at 250 is plenty though.

a heatgun works pretty well too. but hey, if your really crazy serious and have $100 just sitting in your pocket go nuts!

only one guy in our club has that tool and he doesnt even run nitro onroad anymore. maybe i can get a discount, like all the other hudy tools he has passed on to me lol. like he says, all the headaches of racing have moved to "that side of the table"
