Good morning Roger, I just changed the control arms on my RX, but did note a little bearing scrapping on the front left bearing on the hub...My question is do you think I can change that bearing (press it out) with one of the arbor presses at Harbor Freight Tools, or am I playing with fire? My buddy has a Harbor 3 ton arbor press, but do you have to heat up or cool anything to get them out safetly.? Tom
By the way my daughter lives in Chino Hills closer to you and is expecting my 9nth grandbaby....So I will probably be down there in June... Anyway tell me what you think about doing it myself or taking it to NAPA and having them press it out...
Roger, hope you are well today! Just got my vac pump and gages from Harbour Freight. They have a walk-in store about 18 miles from me. The gages are pretty cheesy mostly judged by the rough action on the valves. However, I will probably use them only a few times in my life (I am 60 after all) and they will pay for themselves on this one job. I'll let you know how the vac pump works. I bought the 2 stage oil pump which I got for $71.99 (20% off). It has a one year warranty. Again, can't go wrong because this one job is paying for the pump too.
I can't thank you enough for all the help you have given me and many others on this forum.
PS. I was wrong about the Denso condenser price. The $181 was for my Toyota Avalon. For my wife's RX300 I will pay much more. Looks like more than 2x more. I'm still checking prices but I will likely go with the Denso. If I don't go with Denso, can you recommend a supplier? What about CSF?
