The bearing in a vehicle is what the Automotive Dictionary terms as an "antifriction reducing device that is usually found between two moving parts." The bearing is, as a by-product of this function, often difficult to remove when you are servicing the engine and requires special tools to pull it out. Fortunately, this is a tool that you can manufacture yourself in your own shop. Having a bearing puller in your workshop will help with future car projects and maintenance tasks.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • 1.5 inch diameter pipe
  • 1.5 inch thick bar stock
  • Chop saw and carbide-tipped blade
  • Fender washer
  • Tap and drill
  • Welder

  1. 1

    Cut the bar stock with a chop saw so that it is four inches long.

  2. 2

    Drill and tap in the centre of the bar stock you cut in Step one. Make the hole match the diameter of the jack screw from a gear puller.

  3. 3

    Cut the 1.5 inch pipe in half lengthwise with the chop saw. Cut out a portion of the washer.

  4. 4

    Weld the washer to the bottom of the pipe with the opening of the washer facing outwards. Weld the bar stock into the top of the pipe.

  5. 5

    Screw the jack screw from the gear puller into the bar stock at the top of the bearing puller. The bearing puller is now ready for use.
