  • Differential bearings

    I'm about to install an imitation quaife differential(obx). I used the kit from here to bomb proof it. http://rbryant.freeshell.org/obx_washers.htm

    Now I'm ready for the install or I thought i was.... The differential bearings i order ended up being 32009XM which do not fit the axle output part of the 240sx...

    So i ordered 30209c's which should fit.


    Now my question is how do i remove the 32009xm's from the differential. I have two bearing pullers but the arm are to thick to grab the bearing. Any suggestions?

    Do you have the right bearing puller? You can get a puller that has either two shells that surround the bearing, or one with two half cut plates that clamp in behind the bearing.

      Have you pull a bearing off the axle outputs?

      If you were to look at one the bearing on the diff. The puller would have to have very narrow arms to not hit the diff housing. Not sure I've seen one that would work. But in all honesty haven't really look to hard.

        I bought a quaife and these are the bearings I used:

        If you're having trouble finding the correct puller, you could always just hit up your local machine shop and have them pull off the old ones and press on the new ones.

          Agreed i will probably have them pulled off although i'm tempted to cut them off. I used a rubber hammer and 2x4 to press the bearing in and i worked great.

          I ended up finding the after market reference number for the bearing. (30209)

            30209C is correct -- just used a pair in my diff.
