Default Faifa Pinion bearing block - Help

Hello,
I am doing a maintenance of my Faifa and the bearing of the pinion bearing block drive feels notchy.
I have tried to heat the block in the oven to replace it, but it would not come loose.

Does someone know how to remove it?

Did you crash it?? I had the same Problem after a major Crash. Heated it up in the oven to about 180C
for 15min but it wouldn't come out. Then i noticed that the bearing was in the block crocked and it needed to be pressed in first so it was strait and fully seated and then i did the oven thing again and it went out like nothing!!

Good luck!!

If it is strait in and the oven is not hot enough then use a blow torch and really heat it up and it will fall out!!
the block will easy tolerate 450C! Use the torch only on the side of the block not to heat the bearing directly!

Hi Stallion,
Thanks for your answer.
I did not crash it, so I suppose that the bearing is strait, I am upgrading it to LRH, and doing some maintenance after 4 month.
I do not have a blow torch right now but I will buy one and try it.
