Sixteen bucks at the Chinese tool store. And no - it won't be used just once if you have it in your toolchest.

No, I do not think so, and I would not want to apply grease anywhere in this area. I always remove my flywheel anyway, so I pound it out from the backside.

Just how does one pound the pilot bearing out of the end of the crankshaft from the back side?!?!?

Dan, you got me on this one!!

I have not tried to remove the pilot bearing from my 8N but have removed them from other crankshafts by machining a shaft which fits the inside diameter of the bushing. Then fill the cavity with grease and use the shaft to hydraulic the bushing out by inserting it and hitting with a hammer. You'll be amazed how well it works.

These tractors use a BALL BEARING as the pilot bearing, and it is pressed into the flywheel, rather than the crankshaft flange.

Kind of tough to get a ball bearing with just an outside seal out by the grease method, as the seal would pop out befor the bearing moved.

The pilot bearing "lives" in the FLYWHEEL.

So, with the flywheel removed you can pound it out from the "back", which is actually the "front". (Insert rolling eyes "smiley" here)

Thanks, speaking of flywheel, how much surface wear is too much. Unless it is grooved pretty bad, I do not plan to get it re-surfaced..

It needs to be as smooth as a baby's... well, you get the idea. Most of the time they do not need to be resurfaced, but if the circular area where the clutch rides has extensive rust (pitting), I would spend the $20 and get it resurfaced. As a bonus, most places will balance it at the same time wich gives you the added bonus of a smoother running (less vibration) engine and increased rear oil seal logetivity (fewer leaks).

Probaby if you can find a self threading zerk.

Take a long bolt that the head just fits in the hole, hook the edge of it on the pilot bearing.

Stick a socket over it and put the nut on and tighten it up.

Pull er right out it will..

I removed a pilot bearing by placing my grease-gun nozzle directly into the bearing's center and filling it with grease, then using a close-fitting bolt fitted into the hole....striking the bolt with a hammer. The bolt compressed the grease, popping the bearing right out and onto the shaft of the bolt (as I was holding it.)
