Hey friends! I am building a 700E V2 and was getting ready to lube the Thrust Bearings. Problem was, I couldn't get them out of the Blade Grips - Bearings included.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any tips, tricks, or ideas?

Thx!

I usually can tap them out from the backside.

Throw the whole thing in the oven at about 250 for 20 minutes.
They will fall right out

@jsenicka - i've used that technique before on automobiles - to remove the bearing off the pinion gear. just checking, this doesn't damage anything does it? would heating/cooling compromise the integrity of any parts, especially the grips themselves?
