    Hobart 18 inch Buffalo Chopper bearings

    Front bearing closest to the bowl is shot.
    Took of the nut and star washer and need to get to the bearing.
    since there is a cup behind it I am not sure how to remove the bearing and shaft.
    Wanted to check with the forum for some advice before I started whacking/pulling on anything.
    There is also a rear bearing in the housing for the PTO shaft ( my description) I will replace while I
    have it out.
    I have already taken out the motor and loosened the drive sprocket on the shaft.

    The plastic cap you removed to get to the front bearing area, is what holds the whole assembly in place, as long as the sprocket is loose on the shaft.

    I always put an old hand nut on the end of the shaft and hit it with a brass drift. A proper slide hammer puller would be best though.

    Thanks for the tip I will put a nut on the end where the fluted knob goes and give it a few pulls
