 Next time I get a former Northeast V8 in the shop that needs the tie-rod
removed I'll give you call so you can demonstrate. I actually resorted to a
torch in one case and I have the right tools!

 Even with a hub shark bearing removal isnt easy but its fairly quick when
using a 1/2 inch impact.

 On another note......I have a contact at SKF looking into finding the
industrial ID of the T44 bearings for purchase on the open market. These
bearings are a standard industrial bearing relabled for automotive use. Once
the ID is found it can be purchased from any bearing supplier for a much
lower price.
