Send it to Lang's as a core for the Fun Projects modern bearing spool. I've done three of them that way and wouldn't consider any other way.

Remove the bolt and press it out.

Harry:

If you are going to send it to me (Fun Projects) and have no reason to want the worn out bushing (called the "pinion bearing sleeve") then just leave it in there but if you want it out then remove the hex "set screw" on the side of the housing and then press it out by pushing the bushing out towards the rear of the spool. Sometimes they are easy to press out and sometimes they are pretty well stuck but my press has never failed to move one out. We don't use the old sleeve at all in building up our pinion bearing kit.

I"m with Dale--except I would send it directly to Fun Projects!

I'm with Dale and David. Whenever I have to replace a pinion bearing, I'll send the spool to John and get his replacement bearing.

Why do you think the sleeve needs replacing? Is it severely worn, scored or spalled? Maybe you can use it as is. The original design is quite serviceable if the parts are in good condition.

Ted-the sleeve has pitting on about half of the service and small cracks on the sides as well as being slightly deformed

I've run the original style bearing sleeves for thousands of miles, and never a problem. NOS sleeves show up occasionally. Ford and Hyatt made them, maybe others.

You would have to press the old one out and new one in. Making sure the hole for the lock bolt lines up. You might be better off finding a good one or as suggested one of the Fun Projects replacements.

I'm with Larry. I picked up 2 NOS outer sleeves at Hershey this year with good bearings. The original equipment is available and will roll forever.
