KIT: OTC 6537 Hub Tamer Elite Master Set
BEARING: India D-5 Thrust Ball Bearing
This is a video in response to another one I did using my Hub Tamer and guys were asking about the bearing I used in the kit. This something I added to the OTC kit. However it should not be used because it is dangerous and could kill you and is not endorsed or recommended by OTC. However it make a nice addition to the kit. In my opinion.

    Try frame and spring shops too, those look about like king pin bearings

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars UreaSmith says:

    They don't put them in the kit because it would drive the price up. Retail they are about 34 bucks.

    Astro makes the same type of bearing remover kit, the bearing you'll need for their kit is the INA D7. Available almost anywhere

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike's Channel says:

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james ayer says:

    great tool were do u get the bearing

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    Great Idea. Sometimes the tool manufacturer leaves out an important part during design.
    Great Video!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Terry Harvey says:

    I bought my first. Otc bearing installer in 1988 so l 've been doing this a while. Saw the vidio and ordered a thrust bearing. It works great, makes it much less of a strain on your tools. By the way, my a.c. clutch installer and my ps pump pulley installer came with a thrust bearing. Wonder why otc didn't include one as well. Great vids I do not get as much rust in Tennessee as you do, but I do get some. I feel for you. Good work ain't cheep and cheep worth ain't good. Keep up the good.

    Bro your the man you got a email

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rex Anderson says:

    Lisle has a tool VERY similar for R & R wheel studs.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan Mac says:

    Extreme pressure grease might work too in place of the thrust bearing should a bearing not be available. It wouldn't hurt to lube the threads of the jacking bolt. Thanks for the video.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kelly Okamoto says:

    Wonder if that bearing would fit/work with my strut spring tool?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IM MILLER says:

    Why you just don't run a weld bead on that lil bearing race and fortify it. And see how much use you get out of one.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hard Worker says:

    The bearing you used is it single direction.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dick Marshall says:

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wes InRichmond says:

    Is that D5 thrust bearing 3/4 inch ID or OD?
    thanks

    BTW, Great "teacher" .. better yet "Bearing Professor" !

    And you're still not using hearing protection and that is going to cost you later on in life. It's no joke,hearing loss is horrible and brings nothing but frustration for everybody

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris C says:

    We have the 6537 kit and I have had nothing but problems using that yoke piece to get hubs off..way more hassle than it should be, just wondering if all the various pcs in the elite kit match up with what comes in the 6575 Hub Grappler kit? Was thinking of just getting the grappler separately, since have all the various pcs for dealing with bearings in the elite kit..

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gabriel Velazquez says:

    Wouldn't it work better with a second bearing on the rear? Or is it not possible to add one on the back side?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Haines says:

    The bearing manufacturer is the German company "INA" I have always used them with my Hub Shark by Ken Tool

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Caldwell says:

    Nice! I don't do a lot of hub bearings but it looks like this kit might work well to instill jeep d30-44 upper axle side control arm bushing. Have u ever used it for that?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bibodude says:

    Just a suggestion:  Tapered Roller Bearings may have better lifespan. This type of bearings are designed to withstand also the axial force.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Kimmins says:

    if I may ask, how could these kill you? Are the bearings gonna come shooting out at ya or something?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AnNam Viet Nam says:

    maby you can use hydrolic press ..will be better

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Martinez says:
