Sorry for my late reply. If your puller is similar to the one Steve posted it appears to be a *bearing remover*, the kind that you use with a hammer to knock the bearing out from the back side. The kind that I understood you have is a puller that can pull a bearing from a blind hole from the front....

It is my understanding that the *cross* designation refers to rims that are built with a thicker cross section and therefore are a bit stronger; perhaps for use off-road. To that end, years ago I weighed my stock rear 4626 and my spare 4626 cross. And my stock 4403 and my spare 4403 cross. The *cro...

That's a puzzler. If you have a vise try this. Put the bearing in the vise
and tighten it a little and see if that makes the bearing lock up. This is all
assuming that the bearing, fresh out of the freezer, isn't freezing up the grease
or anything like that.

Bearing number is: 6204Z (20 x 47 x 14mm) Bearings are usually sold with ZZ (2 metal shields). Remove one shield and install the bearing with the remaining shield facing OUT. The bearing is held by a large snap-ring. Heat MAY work. A blind bearing tool WILL work on this and the wheel bearings for t...

"Can the rocker bushes be replaced with the heads in
place and the engine in the frame?"


.....Yes.

"I'm still baffled as to why there was no debris on or in
the oil filter screen or in the alternator cavity."


.....The debris is heavy, it goes to the bottom.

These are all the brass/bronze bushes I could think of: inside the 35 tooth kickstart gear underneath the 34 tooth 1st gear inside the lefthand case supporting the end of the kickstart shaft in the oil pump cover inside each of the 4 rocker arms rod's small end bushings oil filler plug oil drain/sc...

Let me make sure I understand. Do you mean to say that PRIOR to starting the task of installing the rotor you drained the oil and saw the gold flecks? I want to be able to eliminate the new rotor from the list of possibilities. Right off the top of my head I'm thinking that unscrewing an oil drain ...

. The poster mentioned that he " almost had to "bend" the forks to get the wheel tight " This tells me that the axle is coming in from the left side and that the speedo-drive washer is missing. This would work just fine...if there were no disks and calipers installed. It sounds like the disks are s...

. Keep in mind that the *centering* of the front wheel is determined solely by the thickness of the spacer/s between the fork and the hub on the side that the axle takes the nut. Meaning that, on a Darmah with Ceriani forks with the calipers mounted forward on the front of the legs and with the axl...
