    B&G 1510 pump shaft sleeves

    How do you guys get the bronze shaft sleeve off of a BG 1510 series pump. A co-worker of mine that has done a few said everyone hes had to litterly gingerly etch and chissel off. I have one coming up and am looking for any advice. Thanks

    Torch.

    Heat it up good and hot and they come off with a pair of channel locks.

    I have had luck scoring the sleeve with a sawzall or hacksaw and splitting it with a chisel. Remember to use the supplied green locktite to secure the new sleeve.

    b&g 1510 pump shaft sleeve

    lay the shaft on a hard surface like a vice hit, with a ball peen hamer along it`s lenght, rotate 180 degrees & do the same on the other side, do this a few times & it will come off.

    heat wrench, or peen it.
    if it's not damaged, you could leave it.

    Turn it up side down and heat with oxy/ace, it will fall off.

    I have used a bearing splitter and puller to get them off, but as others have said heat will usually do the trick.
    Superheat, that must be REALLY hot.

    Little heat will break the retaining compound loose and it should slide right off. Mapp gas torch usually does the trick.

    Its been awhile but inverting it, heating it with MAPP and tapping with ball peen got that sucker off like nothing- worked great! Thanks. Also wondering if anyone knows what the difference between a 185140 (B&G part#) and a 185140LF (the LF could be the wrong lettering). Does the LF just mean it comes with the loctite? Both seem to be physically the same size but I found an old box with the sleeve in the box but no loctite and no letter designation at the end of the part# Just curoius.

    Link to Bulletin from ITT Site

    Try this link to the B&G old service bulletin for sleeve replacement. Hope this is helpful.

    I used the same method, some accounts wont allow fires or require all kind of time wasters. I clamp the splitter at the end of the sleeve, bolt it and pull it while tapping it with a hammer, I thought I invented it .

    I have used the bearing splitter too. Mostly on other brands before they started using loctite. Wear rings can be fun
