I'm trying to rebuild the 10-bolt for my 02 Z28 and I can't get the carrier bearings to come off. I've tried using a harbor freight bearing puller but it just bent the puller. I don't have a torch but heated the bearing up with map gas as much as I could before using the puller but didn't have any luck. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Bring it up and go for some tuning runs in the beast. I'll get it off for you.

I had a suggestion but I promise it can't beat Paul's offer. I've used a chisel between the back side of the bearing and carrier to get them moving. I have three different chisels - thin to thick in steps I can get them moved about 1/4" and by then they usually aren't too bad. Worst case if it won't move cutoff wheel on a die grinder. Kinda spiral around the inner race most of the way through then split with a chisel. I'd play dumb and head to Paul's though😈. Clay

Does the forth gen Camaro have a carrier bearing? I thought only early sixties B-bodies and light pick-ups had a two piece drive shaft.

It has probably chemically welded itself to the drive shaft through differences in the metallurgy of the two steels in the presence of an electrical field due to friction and moisture. I am surprised the press couldn't remove the bearing. Was that a 12 ton or 20 ton hydraulic press you were using? I bought a 20 ton for $230 bucks and it has been able to do everything I have thrown at it so far. I also use the harbor freight gear puller plates on the press.

I think he's talking about the bearings on the ring gear / posi carrier. I'm pretty sure no mid shaft bearing and I'm thinking it's probably got an aluminum driveshaft also. At least that's my guess on his question. I'm just waiting on feedback from the test ride..... Clay
