Default blinded me with science

just had to post; placed my pinion and races in the freezer with
grease, and then baked the bearings in the oven and whaala,
it slipped right on without the use of my press, and the races
went on with a couple of taps, science :P

Default Freezing

Works when installing the ring gear on a flywheel. Chill the flywheel and heat up the ring gear. It drops right on , then let it set and return to ambient temperature.

When putting on rear axles bearings on a ford axle my dad use to take the axle out to the bulk propane tank and blast the axles with propane. When it turned frosty white he just slipped the bearing right on,it only took a few seconds! The first time I saw that I was like :shock: what the hell,lol! But that was 20 some years ago when he had the service station.

applied (frosty white axels), and being just a kid, your ol' man
