How do I remove the bearings from the camshaft to repair a broken piston arm?


I have a Speedaire 4b227 two piston air compressor. I'm trying to replace a broken piston arm. I have ordered the parts which have now arrived. I have removed the camshaft but don't know how to remove the bearings at the end of the camshaft. Any ideas as to how to remove them? I just need to remove one.

Any help is appreciated.

thanks,
Brent

Google "bearing puller" to get an idea of how to do it.

Sometimes they are not that tight, and you can gently tap it off at the inner part so you don't put pressure on the ball bearings.

If it's too tight, and you don't want to buy a bearing puller (may be spendy), you may be able to rent one from an auto store, or just pay a shop to change it.

if it's really tight, it may take a shop press (hydraulic jack in a frame) to get it back on, otherwise maybe tap it back...

Good luck.
