Tool set J 7593-03, designed for use with standard size
bearings, may be used to remove and install .010"
undersize and .020" undersize bearings by reducing the
pilot diameter of the pilot J 7593-2, installer J 7593-3,
remover J 7593-5, installer J 7593-6, and installer J
7593-15. The pilot diameter of these tools should be
reduced by .020". This reduction in tool diameter does
not materially effect usage on standard size bearings. If
the tools are used frequently, However, it may be
advisable to purchase additional standard pieces.
Reduced diameter tools have not been released.
