It's not hard to do if you have the tools and torque wrench needed for the job. with the bike on it's center stand, remove the exhaust, rear wheel and then the lever giving access to the bearing. installation of the lever is the hard part. you must tighten and secure the lever bolts properly for safety (get a manual for tightening procedure and torque specs). bleeding the clutch is easy, ensure you use the right fluid.

Hi Which steering head bearing kit do I go for?

the best way is to measure with a vernia caliper the inside and outside diameter of the top and bottom bearings you already have and compare them with what you were going to buy. for instance the bottom bearing may have a 30mm OD and a 45 mm OD and be 13 mm high.i strongly recommend you fit taper roller bearings to it .

I need to know how to install my clutch On my 2008 hyundai tiburon GS 4cyl

2008? NIIIICE!! I have a 2000 Tibby, customized with chrome illusion and hologram sharks throughout!
A trip to trade school is probably the first thing you should do! LOL! Clutch installs should not be taken lightly... Best bet is to buy an in depth repair manual and consider the repair after reading it over a dozen times... it's probably a job best left to an experienced mechanic.

Bad crank bearings can move crank arms small amount.

That would depend on the style of bearings (loose ball or caged balls vs sealed bearings) and possible bottom bracket damage.

Either way, a Bike Shop mechanic would probably need to assess it for you. Special tools are usually involved.

Instructions for installing 2001 gs430 struts type Monroe Sensi-Trac front & rear. What all has to be removed. Would this also be a good time to replace the wheel bearings at 160K or is repairs...

Be carefull , you will need spring compressor tools to do the job. The springs are compressed quite a bit and if you just undoo the top nut for the strut , you could kill yourself. Don't doo wheel bearings unless you know they are bad. Not sure about your lexus , but most modern cars have sealed bearings pressed in place.

who told you that???? a wally or what?
im sorry to tell you the cluch slave cylinder has nothing to do with the cluch thrust bearing the slave cylinder only operates the cluch rod,, which inturn pushes on the cluch thrust bearing which then disengages the cluch,,,if the trust bearing is warn or wearing out it rumbles or starts a knocking sound from the gear box,, this noise gets worse as the cluch bearing wears out,, finaly it starts to realy screem,, bad like!!! the problem is,, you need a new cluch fitted to the bike which is far from cheep to get repaired,,,,,and its a big job too,
i hope this has put you right,,
good luck,,from1 biker 2 another

Pulling JGC $.7l engine need help

If you can get your hand back there you can try removing with a flat ratchet.Or, try using a very long extension with a swivel socket from underneath. Otherwise, sometimes it's easier to remove trans (separated from transfer case) with the engine (easier to get converter in properly when re-installing) Be aware that if crank bearings have spun, chances are there is metal throughout all oil passages in the engine and that cam bearings may have been affected...Block should be boiled out and have new cam bearings installed or you may be spending a lot of money for a short term repair.

Buick Regal Gs supercharger nose assembly please help if you can

the 3.8" supercharger (belt) pulley? You need a special tool as they are press fit. and

both carry it and offer the tool for rent as well.

Much of the noise comes from the coupler, however there are case (needle) bearings as well that wear, Those are much more difficult to replace.
