How to replace U-joints The THOR method

Why hammer the new caps on when you could simply press them on in the vise? I used to do these all the time using a socket in a vise to separate the yokes. Hammering them out looks a lot quicker, but when putting them in, you could skip the step of packing them with grease and just squeeze them together in the vise as you don't have all that vibration to knock out the needle bearings.

Great tip for packing grease in the cap so the needle bearings don't move. Thanks

Brian, you are an awesome teacher, thanks. Your videos are easy to watch. I have been using "anti-seize" instead of trany lube to ease my parts together. Any comments about "anti-seize"?

best way i found was just use an angle grinder. then its easier to beat out. thats also if i dont have any opportunity to use a vise or press lol

Instead of risking of damaging the needle bearings by tapping with a hammer, you can use a C clamp to press them in.

Dude - AWESOME METHOD! I made the mistake of trying this with a small claw hammer which was all I had within reach at the time. It failed miserable. I bought a 4 pound mini sledge and tried again. This 90% froze up ujoint cap was out in THREE HITS! THOR! THOR! THOR! THOR! By the way's Thor's hammer is named Mjölnir LOL
