Race bearing replacement?

Anyone ever replace engine race bearings on a crankshaft? I would be doing it on a 66 allstate. any idea on how possible it is?

Races are what the bearings sit in .

If bad they need to be pressed out and new ones pressed in.

New bearings and seals/ total rebuild is needed also

Find the number for the bearing (example, L17a), and you should have no problem sourcing new ones. The old inner and outer races would then be removed and simply replaced.

They are thrust/angular contact bearing, size is 17x40x10

They are not expensive - $15 for 10 bearings


You will also need spi seals 17x35x7 available all over the place
