#Automotive

Install two bearing caps in one procedure on virtually all medium and light-duty u-joints.

  • Manufactured from high-grade steel for strength and durability
  • Simple to use for instant results

An encased magnet is utilized for installation, retaining the new bearing cap in place over the yoke assembly opposite the forcing screw. Once this assembly is secured, a second bearing cap is positioned for installation by means of the plunger found at the end of the forcing screw.

An impact or hand wrench is applied to the forcing screw, securing the first bearing cap in place and allowing installation of the first retaining clip. The u-joint is then rotated and the process repeated, effectively installing both bearing caps.

Application
• Commonly found on class 1-2 trucks, cars and equipment. (Ford F-150/350, Chevrolet 1500/3500, Ram 1500/3500, etc.)
• Bearing caps with a minimum diameter of .85"
• Max opening of 5.675" and a throat depth of 2.2"

#BoltRetained

Accurately install bolt-retained bearing caps in minutes.

  • Accurately aligns bolt-retained bearing caps for easy installation
  • Reduces the risk of damage to needle bearings

The outside guide bolts are designed to ensure the bolt-retained bearing cap is accurately aligned for installation. An impact or hand wrench is then applied to the forcing screw, installing the new bearing cap with ease and efficiency.

Installing the bearing cap without the use of a hammer eliminates frustrating dislocation of needle bearings, while also protecting surrounding vehicle components.

• Spicer 1610-1880 Series
