    Exclamation How do you put bearings back together?

    Hey guys, I have some MHS bearings, and I took off the shields to clean them in some mineral spirits, but all the actual bearings and inner circle piece fell out of one.

    Anyone got tips to put it back together? I've done it once before but I think it was by sheer luck, and now I can't remember how I did it.

    Help is needed ASAP! as I'm trying to go skate soon.

    Put all the balls into the outer race on one side, then fit the inner race in. Then attempt to separate the balls evenly then press the retainer in. How the hell were you cleaning them?

    Patience young grasshopper!!!
    Lay it down put on one side, put the center ring in and keep it a little off center, drop all the balls in next to each other, use a Qtip stick or something small and pointy but not to hard so you dont scratch the ball, slowly seperate them and move the center piece back spread them out in an even pattern and snap the cage back over, If it has a cage. i never took them apart so i dont know, once you get a few into the cage you can poke the other ones back into place and then put shield back on, I hope this make sense and it works for you .... good luck... its not hard, I have had all the balls drop out and got them back together.

    thanks for the ideas.

    my cleaning process is:

    -take off shields
    -take off retainer
    -place into acetone/mineral spirits (i don't keep them in there over night like I should, only like an hour)
    -take out, oil, reassemble
    -skate!

    thanks again guys.

    Oh that makes sense. Once the balls all bunch up on one side then the inner race falls out pretty easy.

    Don't take the retainer out in the future. Just remove the shields.

    I was wondering how an MHS bearing fell apart. Just about all I use and it'd never happened to me.

    Agreed. It's never a good idea to take them apart... those balls are HARD to find in shag carpet.
