ranger 6x6

the wheel bearings on the two middle wheels have gone out. i have searched and found info on front and rear bearing replacement on 4 wheels but is the procedure the same on the two middle wheel bearings on the 6x6 or is there something i need to know or do before replacing them.


i found this thread and i like the ideal about using the oven to heat it up better than weld shinking the bearing race like i had found on youtube. easy way to install wheel bearings

thanks in advance.

well, the oven method worked great. i removed the bearing assembly from the ranger. i pulled the retaining ring and most of the insides of the bearing came/fell out. i preheated the oven to 450 and put it in there for 15 minutes. i built a small wooden with a hole that the bearing assembly fit into. when the timer went off, i put the assembly on the box and with one tap on the backside of the race with a punch, it fell out. i heated it again for about 5 minutes and pulled one of the new bearings that i had put in the freezer the night before. i used the trimmed wooden circle that i had cut from the wooden box to tap the new bearing in evenly. i then cooled the assembly and bearing slowly by sprinkling water on it to protect the new bearing from getting to hot.
