Angry C6 Torrrington Bearing install in Planetary carrier assy.?

I am finishing up on a rebuild of a late model Ford C6 transmission. The Torrington bearing in the front plant gear carrier needs to be changed. Question is, how do I get the bearing out and the new one in. The planetary gears do not give enough clearance to remove the worn bearing. I can break out the old bearing but how do I get the new one in? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

You can't press out the pins for the rollers and insert it that way?

One of the pinions must be removed to replace that bearing. It may be easier to get a different planetary.

Old thread, I know, but I'm looking to do the same as the OP and not looking to get a new and expensive planetary gear set, which may or may not require different parts to maintain clearances etc.. The Torrington in mine looks and feels smooth, but nearly everything in the tranny is new, including thrust washers, clutches, etc so I wanted to replace these as well.

Do the pins simply press out? Not looking to fracture anything or break it so I'm just double checking.

Thanks in advance,

Matthew

the pins are staked and pressed in .you'll end up destroying the planetary trying to get the pin out

So basically, short of buying a new one, there's no way to replace the bearing?

Thanks, Matthew
