WHEEL BEARING RETAINER SOCKET ( FRONT ) S.O.H.C.

Here we go with one of our Newest designs, this time I wanted to make a good tool to remove the front hub wheel bearing and try and save the Original retainer if possible, and 99% of the time you will destroy the old one with a chisel and hammer.

So, we came up with this idea and it works on ALL the bikes that we build, I will also have the rear hub socket available on the parts pages too, so check them both out.

We made these here in house and then sent them out to get chromed, and this is such a handy tool to own.

Seeing as I use mine all the time, I thought I would offer them to you the public and stop you climbing the walls trying to get your retainer undone.

All the tools you will need is a ratchet and that’s it, you can go and remove the retainer, but remember to remove the Oil seal first.

But a great tool to get you out of trouble if you cannot get that alloy retainer to budge.

Even if you only use this once, it will save you so much time and frustration that’s for sure.

Always keep it in your tool box for the next wheel bearing job- or even lend it to your mate and stop him crying too.

If you have a CB750 from 1969- 1978 then the front bearing retainer is the same, all you do is pop the old oil seal out, insert our socket tool and use your ratchet wrench and there you go, she will come undone, this has saved me many times in the past and I hope that you will feel as relieved as we did when we first used it?

 

We sell the Retainer and the Oil seal if you need it and just check our pages of parts for them as we have a search engine, as well as having a New website coming out to make your shopping even easier, now that’s a good thing right?

We also sell the rear retainer tool to get that stubborn Alloy retainer out.
