Steering Bearing question
I'm starting my winter work on my 77 T140v, and found that the steering bearings are badly in need of replacement. They were tapered roller type at one time, but the bottom one was nothing but a few rollers and LOTS of rust.
The bottom race is toast, and there's no way to get anything on it to drive/pull it out. There's also very little race visible to work with on the top. There is a good bit of metal visible that is either a machined landing, or maybe the spacers in the parts book. I don't have parts yet to compare.
Can someone clear this up for me? I don't want to start beating on things and end up with a bigger problem!
