Track Bearings Disassembly

In this blog post, we will explore the process of disassembling track bearings. Track bearings are an essential component in various industrial applications, providing smooth motion and support for heavy loads in tracks or rails. Proper disassembly is crucial for maintenance and repair purposes, ensuring that the bearings can be inspected, cleaned, and replaced if necessary. Let’s delve into the step-by-step disassembly procedure.

1. Preparing Tools and Workspace

Before beginning the disassembly process, gather the necessary tools and ensure you have a suitable workspace. The tools typically used for track bearing disassembly include:

  • Socket wrench set
  • Hammer
  • Bearing puller
  • Grease gun

Set up your workspace with adequate lighting and a clean surface to prevent any damage to the bearings during disassembly.

2. Removing Retaining Rings or Locknuts

The first step in disassembling track bearings is to remove any retaining rings or locknuts that hold the bearings in place. These components may vary depending on the specific bearing design, so refer to the manufacturer’s instructions or technical documentation for guidance. Use a suitable tool, such as a socket wrench or pliers, to carefully loosen and remove the retaining rings or locknuts.

3. Extracting Inner and Outer Races

Once the retaining rings or locknuts are removed, you can proceed with extracting the inner and outer races of the track bearings. This step requires caution and precision to avoid damaging the races or other surrounding components. Follow these steps:

  1. Inspect the bearing assembly to identify the inner and outer races.
  2. Position the bearing puller tool around the outer race, ensuring a secure grip.
  3. Apply force evenly and gradually to pull the outer race from its housing.
  4. Repeat the process to extract the inner race carefully.

4. Cleaning and Inspection

After removing the races, it is crucial to clean and inspect them for any signs of wear, damage, or contamination. Use an appropriate solvent or cleaning agent to remove dirt, debris, and old grease. Inspect the races visually and by touch, checking for cracks, pitting, or any irregularities. If any defects are detected, it is recommended to replace the races to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

5. Reassembly and Lubrication

Once the cleaning and inspection are complete, you can proceed with reassembling the track bearings. Apply a suitable lubricant or grease to both the inner and outer races, ensuring even coverage. Take care not to over-grease, as it can lead to excessive heat and premature wear.


Disassembling track bearings is a necessary process for maintenance and repair. By following the step-by-step procedure outlined above, you can ensure the proper disassembly, cleaning, inspection, and reassembly of track bearings, prolonging their lifespan and maintaining optimal performance.
