4.0L Pilot bearing removal/installation tips
I am going to remove my pilot bearing tonight and get to work on reassembling my Jeep after replacing the clutch and slave unit. I am just looking for tips on removing the pilot bearing and installing the new one.
A few years ago, my dad and I changed the clutch on my truck and used the grease method (packing grease in the pilot bushing and then using the clutch alignment tool and hydraulic pressure to force it out), but since my Jeep has a bearing and not a bushing will that method still work?
Can I just use a socket to tap the new bearing in?
Thanks for your help.
