    i was taught to always replace split pins ’cause they are a single use item

  2. donyboy73 says:

    yes that was the point of this video although some didn’t realize that by their comments

  3. SuperDd40 says:

    insted of using a socket you can use the old bearing to hit on

  4. Micheal Gabriel says:

    hey donyboy i got a new go kart and the back wheels have the same play as in the video i dont know wats going on becuase it is new i only had it for a couple of months but it doesnt affect the way it drives

  5. donyboy73 says:

    ask t-man

  6. Tristan102100 says:

    i don’t see why not. but it still needs to be on the outside edge

  7. Tristan102100 says:

    just a random thought: do you simply throw all the parts into a container or water bottle then use the video to figure out which ones go where or do you put them on a piece of cardboard or how do you do it?

  8. Tristan102100 says:

    if you bend the ends 3 or 4 times they simply break off. i agree.

  9. Tristan102100 says:

    do you do any starter rebiolds on atvs? my atv has a dual funtion charger-starter. it charges but doesent start do you think the brushed are dirty?

  11. donyboy73 says:

    rarely, i give people the choice of an aftermarket one or the more expensive oem

  12. donyboy73 says:

    usually put them in a container, the video is always there in case i need it ofr reference

  13. Jack Ferguson says:

  14. Tristan102100 says:

    using a hamber to install a bearing amiture

  20. donyboy73 says:

    thanks for the tips

    hey donny, just a couple things i wanted to point out to you. you can use a piece of hardwood to hit bearings in. or a piece of 4×4 cut to size. also a socket the proper diameter to the outside of the bearing.

    same goes with seals. also just dab of grease does help some. good videos otherwise.

  22. dblixt1 says:

    Press would be nice :)

  23. Gleb1986Kiev says:

    What grease do you use?

  24. donyboy73 says:

    any wheel bearing grease, I show it in my last Q&A

  25. tgkgate says:

    i cringed when i seen him hit that bearing with a steel hammer.. use a wood/plastic/old bearing/rubber mallet whatever. i keep lead and nibril ingots around just for this purpose.

    a brass/bronze collet punch (3-4″ diameter) with a lead face is very nice for installing bearings
