    Can someone help me on disassembling my bearing carrier? I don't recognize this as a nut, I'm assuming it is something threaded but I don't want to do something that may screw it up. Seems very tight

    Photo to come, having a hard time using the app on the phone

    That's looks like a splined shaft.
    Was there a nut and large washer over it?
    Is that the inner CV cup?
    Wait you have Yokes correct?
    So it would be a CV cup with a Bolted on Yoke.

    Looks like you need a puller.

    Can you get a bigger picture of the setup.

    There is probably a bolt running through the entire assembly.

    I used loctite 648 on one cup so the splined shaft stays with that one cup. It helped cut down on any chance of the cup wobbling and chewing on the shaft.

    It could be tight on the bearing too. In that case, the puller will just push the shaft out.

    You might need to use a puller to get it off. Does the other side look the same?

    That's the inner CV cup at the Spool. I thought you meant the bearing carrier on the trailing arms.

    If you don't already have a decent puller then you'll need to make a Puller. First off, spray some liquid wrench on it to help out.
    Cheap puller usually don't work well and can often break. You can probably make one with scrap parts and it be stronger then a store bought one.
    Being that it's a cv cup, it should be fairly easy to make a puller.
    I'd use a 3/8" flat bar about 1-1.5" wide cut the length to sit on top across the cv. 1/4" may do.
    Drill 2 holes on the ends of the flat bar matching 2 holes across from each other on the cv cup. The holes need to be big enough for the CV cup bolts to slide through.
    Then you need a hole in the center of the flat bar, 5/8 should be good. Weld a 5/8 nut over the center hole.
    Place the puller on the CV and bolt it down with 2 bolts onto the cup.
    Use a fairly good length 5/8 all threaded bolt in the center hole and start cranking it down.
    As you screw in the 5/8 bolt and it rests against the bolt coming out of the shaft, the puller bar will begin to pull the cup off the splined shaft from the 2 bolts on each end of the puller.
    You may need to use an impact to get it to break free.

    I hope this makes sense.
    If not I can draw you a pic when I get a chance or feel free to send me a text.

    If ya dont have a puller (you should just buy one for Christmas) a few smacks with a rubber mallet will usually break mine loose. I run green locktite on splines.

    Yes, this is the spool not the training arms.
    There was a large washer and nut, I expected when I had that off the bolt would come out but I can't even turn it.
    My intention was just to take it apart, possibly replace the bearings and see how it goes together. I like to be familiar with my stuff so I can trouble shoot easier.
    If this is the spline from the other side, I'm surprised it protrudes through? Then the strength of the washer, which is cupped, is what holds the 2 ends together, if everything is locktighted together and it is holding solid, I may let the sleeping dog lay there, just keep an eye on the current play and see that it does not increase.

    How does the nut and CV star look? Does it look like the Star and nut were getting intimate?

    Is the stud lock-tited in?

    Shouldn't the flange just pop off the splines at this point?
