To replace the bearings proceed as follows: heat the crankcase half in an oven to 100 ВєC; remove the bearing using a drift and hammer; install the new bearing (while the crankcase is still hot) keeping it perfectly square in its seat using a tubular drift that only bears on the outer ring of the bearing; allow the parts to cool and check that the bearing is securely fastened to the crankcase half.

Before starting, check that the crankshaft main bearing and big-end journals are free of burrs or evident signs of machining: if necessary, clean the surfaces with very fine emery cloth and oil.
