        Hi Listers,

            It's front wheel bearing replacemnt time for the CGT.  The
Haynes contains various references to pushing stuff around e.g. "press or
drive out the hub" , "press or drive out the bearing" and so on.

        I don't own a press, although I could prolly locate someone with
one, but my questions to those who've done this before are; How tight a fit
is the bearing in the housing? - do I have a chance of doing this with
judicious use of heat, some appropriately sized drifts and a BFH? or is it
only really doable with a hydraulic press?
