    Heck no! I was just wondering if anyone had done it that way back in the day. Worst thing I ever did on the fly was a motor terminal plate gasket on a CVHE at a hospital that only had the one chiller. Took it down at 1:00 AM and had it running by 4:30 AM including bringing the pressure up to zero. I used a full face scuba mask with regulator and breathing 50/50.

    CW you need to be there in person when you tell your boss how much Trane wants for the press and hydraulic nuts, you are going to love the expression his face makes then.

    The press is not a necessity, I spent about 14 years with a factory Trane office, there were hundreds of overhauls done on CVHEs long before the press idea ever came out and they all ran just fine. Make sure you check the clearance between the bearing and the shaft with a feeler gauge, there should be none, do that and you wont have any problems.

    There are a lot of guys on here who have done them both ways and never had a problem.

    Let us know whether he lets you buy it or not, my money says he sh*ts his pants at the cost.
    If you dont stand behind our troops, please feel free...........to stand in front of them.

    I didn't check to see how old the SB is that you were looking, but there has been a lock nut change in recent years and you need a new style lock nut socket along with special torx sockets.

    As for not using the press. All I will say is you should follow the instructions included with the bearings.

    Or I guess you could go on the assumption that you have more insite into the process than the Trane eng. dept.

    Ditto triggerhappy's post they wouldnt ask you to do it if it wasnt nessacary??? Also you dont have to buy the tools from you know who . You can get them at any bearing supply house or hydraulic place . They even put the manufacturers #'s in the bulletin .

    For instance we had a big CVHE that was shaking and was out of warranty.
    At that point I was just following instructions from LaCross and probably took the machind down at least 5 times as they sent bearings, rotors, seals, gkt. kits and finally the part that made the fix. The Ball Bearing Bracket itself.

    Not to mention the rental chiller that sat there for a month.

    I don't beleive that the job could have been resolved the same way by any contractor.[/QUOTE]


    Sorry trigger but I could not stop myself.

    What about a job we "Big bad FACTORY" did where we installed a cooling tower of a different design and didnt think about a check valve in the discharge of the pump so we left the customer with running the pump 24/7/365 so that it would not air lock on start up as a final solution.

    What about the courthouse we installed condensating boilers on a building with a steel stack and and would not do anything about it until the county got the lawyers involved?

    What about the time I had to rebuild a CVHE by myself around the clock because the hospital was down and there was nbody out of 40+ techs that could work that weekend?

    What about the guys with 20+ yrs, poses sells the company and the retirement is gone?

    What about Carrier not allowing techs to cary a pocket knife? Is that saftey or BS?

    What about GPS on their trucks?

    The factory does have "some advantages" for sure like the tech info and factory support. But there are advantages of working for indipendents as well. We are real people who can make our own decisions without checking in with corporate! I never could accept the answer that "it's CORPORATE POLICY". Who is corporate anyway? God almighty? Do we throw away common since because CORPORATE SAYS SO? I could not stand to hear someone say that! Do we have to slay a fattened calf and put it on the alter to get into the holyest of holys at the corporate office? If they say the C word then you can forget it because that means we cant even propose it as we are lowly and unworthey!

    Rules
    You have to live by them! We get to make em or break em! Being a pirate has some disadvantages but life is allot more fun! He He He
