Any hints or tips for removing the brass bushings in the aluminum fan hubs?

Thanks,
Don

When I replaced the ballbearings on my hub, I put in the oven on low for 30 mins and they poped out with just a few lite taps. New bearings went in the same.

Donald, if you have a tap near enough to the size needed to put a thread in the bushes, wind it in to one of the bushes as far as possible. Then using a drift from the opposite side, drive the tap and bush out. Once one is out the other can be driven out with a drift.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tips, I was able to get a drift between the two bushing and with a bigger hammer was able to drive one out, the second one was easy. New bushings in and hub rebuilt.

Don, make sure you have enough clearance in there or it may seize up.Did that once. Not sure how tight is OK, just not to tight........
