Countershaft Bearing replacement?

Post by SirFoxx » Sun Sep 24, 2017 8:26 pm

Hello--

This question may need input from xirdneh, but any responses are welcomed. I split my tranny to reseal it, and I noticed that my counter shaft bearing is ready to explode. I tried looking up both the nachi and toyota part # and cannot source a replacement bearing. Are there any secret places where I may get a replacement bearing?

Also, is the bearing a press on bearing?

Toyota (90365-32009)
Nachi (32RT06S3LRN)

I bought one from locate ball bearings. $60. Do you have any advice for pulling the bearing off without a puller?

I used a bearing remover under the bearing and a bar of metal on end of shaft end with holes or slots in it for two 3/8 all thread rods going from bar to bearing thing. The bearing remover is in two halves with bolts holding them together. Got it a harbor freight for pretty cheap.

Installing bearing can be done with section of steel pipe about 7 inched long. I freeze shaft and warm bearing to make it go on easier. Using a press would be best.

Also this. Its been a while since I did one but I think you have to have bearing remover somewhat loose around shaft to clear something. Cannot remember what
