I'm getting ready to replace propeller shaft center bearing on 07 frontier crew cab 2 wheel drive. is bearing pressed on or can it be replaced with out press?


You can use a long drift punch to knock the old one off. I use a piece of pipe that is the same size as the inner bearing race and drive it back on.

How do I replace my carrier bearing in a 1988 Chevy Silverado extended cab long bed?


I'm guessing your you are referring to the drive shaft center support bearing. Remove u-joint 4 bolts at rear diff., then 2 bolts for center support. Slide driveshaft assembly out of trans. and lay on ground. On either side of the center support, make alignment marks on front and rear half of drive shafts with a crayon or tape (very important for re-assembly). Slide rear half off. Press out center support. Clean sleeve with emery cloth or 400 grit sand paper. Press on new center support, lube splines and reconnect drive shaft halves making sure alignment marks meet. Install assembly and torque bolts.

How do you remove the center support bearing on a 1997 c1500 chevy drive shaft


The bearing should slide off the drive shaft. You should be able to buy the bearing and mount together. If the bearing is froze on the shaft you may need a torch.

How to replace the center support bearing and what size bolts or if studs are used what size nuts are required? Also what is the best tool to use for changing the spark plug behind the steering shaft?


The center support bearing is secured to the cross-member using either a stud with an 11/16 in. nut or sometimes an 18mm nut. or it can also be sucured using a 3/8 in. bolt with a 5/8 in. bolt head and either a 15mm, 5/8", 11/16", or an 18mm nut, and GM did not stop the assembly line when they ran out of a certain nut or bolt and that is why there could be so many different ones used.

(A split drive-shaft is a balanced unit and it must be marked for proper alignment before separating the two halves or the drive shaft will no longer be in balance and will cause a vibration and early u-joint failure, and be very sure that there is a line on each half of the drive-shaft before it is separated so that the drive-shaft can be aligned re-assembled correctly)

The center support bearing should be pressed off and on the drive shaft using a hydraulic press, (a machine shop usually does not charge very much to do that) and using a hammer and a drift to replace the center support bearing is not recommended however some people do replace the center support bearing that way and a lot of the time they will damage the drive shaft or center support bearing and that will only make it more difficult and time consuming to properly install the center support bearing.

(The u-joint and the axle yoke should also be marked together before the u-joint is removed from the axle yoke so that they are installed back in the same way that they came out to prevent any drive shaft vibration)

To change the spark plug behind the steering shaft use a spark plug socket (a good spark plug socket will also have a provision for attaching a 5/8" or 16mm wrench to the end of the spark plug socket) and instead of putting an extension and a ratchet on the socket, slip the socket onto the spark plug and then use the wrench to loosen the spark plug and to tighten it, but also use a length of 3/8" fuel line and push the end of the spark plug into the fuel line and then use it to start and run down the spark plugs and also to remove the spark plugs once they have been loosened.

What's the best way to remove a 240 drive shaft support bearing?


this is a pressed unit. honestly youre better off either purchasing the whole drive line or go buy the bearing new and take it to a transmission or drive line shop. they wont charge that much to remove and replace the bearing and all youll have to do is r and r.
