Windmill Roller Trucks

I just received the beautiful new rollers for my new windmill press, and realized that the device for removing and replacing the trucks is not a part of this press. Anyone have any good methods for doing this?

In the factory issue parts book is listed T2432F (normally attatched to the machine) from the rear left side, outboard of the reciprocating ink drum is located T2432F for pulling of & pressing on Trucks.
If this device is absent a tiny simple 2 legged D.I.Y. puller will extract Trucks and for refitting (in the absence of even a tiny bearing press) a Copper/Hide hammer and a Socket spanner (long reach spark plug type or similar) will drift the replacements ON with just a modicom of gentle taps.

Lining the Dogs/Lugs up on the way in of course.!

Good Luck. Mick.

I’ll respectfully add that when pressing/driving on the bearings, it is best to press on the inner race (close to the shaft). A tube (or socket as suggested) just a bit bigger than the roller shaft should do. Tapping on the outer race can damage the bearings.
