Steering Head Bearing Race Removal
I was going to pack my steering head bearings with new grease but I see slight galling on the bottom race. It's ever so slight. I can just feel it by dragging my fingernail across the surface, but not with my fingertip. I assume if there's anything even the slightest bit wrong with either one of them they both got to go. I ordered a new set top and bottom.
Is there a good way to get the races out without special tools? Or is there a tool that doesn't cost too much? Is there anything to watch out for? I was just going to use a screwdriver and very carefully tap them out, but I thought I should check in with you guys before I charge blindly ahead.
