Trailer Brakes and Bearings
Mar 3rd, 2013 at 4:54pm
 
Going to replace trailer bearings this spring, and while have them apart replace kodiak disc pads.  Been a while since I worked with rotors, races and seals, but have bought a bearing install tool kit.  Only thing that worries me is the getting old races out.  Should I try a center punch, screwdriver or invest in a brass drift?  Also have a spreader to push caliper piston back in.  Also will be replacing all the brake hose with new.

Any tips will appreciated.   Smiley

screwdriver, chisel, or punch works great if you take your time.  I have never used anything else so I am not for sure if anything works better.  Wink
