Bearing Race Starter Kit

Kit
Important. This kit needs at least one Adapter Kit in order to operate.
+ Adapter Kits
#WheelsOn

Bearing races can now be removed and installed precisely in minutes while the wheels remain on the hub. This is a hydraulically powered kit that horizontally services bearing races when used together with bearing specific adapters.

  • 20 tons of pulling power for efficient removal and installation of the race
  • Manufactured from high-grade steel for strength and durability


After the wheel and hub assembly have been removed from the truck, the Hydraulic Bearing Race Starter Kit is utilized to remove old races and install new ones with ease.

Removing and reinstalling the wheels can be time consuming—for technicians and their customers. Lug nuts require re-torquing after the first 50 to 100 miles of service, meaning the truck is off the road and back in the shop. By leaving the wheel mounted to the hub, the Bearing Race Starter Kit not only reduces shop time and reduces the likelihood of a wheel-off situation, but improves the lifespan of the wheel studs by not unnecessarily re-torquing them.

The Bearing Race Starter Kit also includes an aluminum ring to mitigate the risk of damage to ABS ring located on the inboard side of the hub.

Application
• Commonly found on class 6-8 transportation trucks and equipment. (Kenworth, Peterbilt, Freightliner, Mack, Volvo, etc.)

Notes
Requires a 10,000 psi pump and at least one adapter kit to operate

#WheelsOff

Bearing races can now be removed and installed precisely in minutes on a stripped-down hub utilizing bearing specific adapters and a shop press.

  • Eliminates injuries due to hammering, punching and welding methods
  • Manufactured from high-grade steel for strength and durability


The split ring is forced to expand over the wedge, increasing the diameter of the split ring until the ring clamps onto the bearing race. Split rings are manufactured from high-grade steel and undergo multiple treatment processes, ensuring the longevity of the tool.

The shop press is used to apply force to the split ring/wedge assembly, pressing the bearing race out with little effort. A shop press can also be applied to install new races in conjunction with one of the adapter kits.

The 10908 kit provides a safer, more streamlined method for servicing bearing races. Traditional welding, hammering and punching methods are time-consuming, cumbersome and dangerous; regularly resulting in injuries to technicians.

Your time is valuable. Why not save it.

Technicians who use our Bearing Race Service Kits benefit from a 25-30% reduction in service time, with time savings upwards of thirty minutes per hub! 

Be consistent and confident no matter how seized your races are.

Our patent-pending method for installing bearing races seats the new race perpendicular to the bore and utilizes bearing specific adapters to apply even pressure until the race is perfectly seated—every time.

Traditional methods notoriously cause damage to the walls of the bore as the race cocks from side to side. Our system mitigates this damage and eradicates the inevitable slag being burnt into the hub.

4,100,000 workplace injuries occur each year in the United States.

Keep it safe. 

Servicing bearing races is no easy feat, and traditional methods put technicians at risk. Anyone who’s been faced with a seized race and armed with only a hammer and punch can relate all too well to the inherent danger of striking one’s own hand.

Damaging vehicle components happen more often than you think.

The traditional Hammer & Punch method can cause damage to the bearing race bore inside the hub.

This can cause the new race to seat improperly leading to premature bearing/seal failure and cause uneven tire wear. As the punch makes multiple side-to-side strikes to the race, it causes the race to come out in an un-parallel motion causing damage to the hub’s machined surface.

This kit eradicates the inevitable welding slag from damaging and contaminating the inside of the hub. If gone unnoticed, even the smallest amount of slag can make its way back into the bearing assembly causing premature failure.
