I have a snap-on bearing seperator and used it succesfully to get the bearing off my pinion but I cant get it to work on the carrier. It's too wide to stick in the hydraulic press so how do I get them off? Thx

I used an andle grinder on a different carrier i had, just do it carefully and when you get real close to cutting through, i used a chisel in the groove i cut, a couple of good whacks (nothing to damage the carrier) and the race of the bearing split and i was able to work it off.

hate to send you to another site, but check out pirate 4x4 just long enough to print out the "14ff bible". Of course, as soon as you are done, return to CK5 and vote for it as your favorite site! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

And what would the appropriate puller be?

I use a 2 jaw puller that slips right into the little reliefs cut into the carrier and throw an impact on the puller and they pop right off. Doesn't even hurt the bearings.

i tried taking them off with a puller(and wondering about the hole also) and gave on that. I was able to use my press and just angle to hold down while i used bfh and bar to knock off. I just kept rotating and it came right off. Just need to rotate and keep hitting. Once i got the hang of it, only took a few minutes.

The appropriate puller would be a carrier bearing puller. Its hard to explain. Look in one of those randys ring and pinion ads, theres a pic of one with the tools.

What do you place over the hole in the carrier for the puller to push against? Washers?

I actually use a 30 taper face mill holder for my CNC mill, it fits perfect and has a nice little dimple in the middle for the end of the puller. Looks like this:
