my last post was interrupted. The reason given to me about removing the bearings was  that there was a high risk of distortion and or galling of the bearing when the tool was not used.

I cant imagine Sleeman's will be cheap for a one off special tool. I would be inclined to leave the parts in a machine shop and they will fit it for small money. Plus if they fcuk it up they will have to do it again gratis.

Well said Johndoh and very true.

I have always had a DIY mentality, at times a shoot yourself in the foot out come but that's how you learn. I watched the you tube video and looked at the picture of the special bearing removal tool in the manual.

I turned up a plug that fits the SL1 and was able to extract the bearings and  reinsert them so maybe I will be able to proceed.

thanks guys: That was good for a chuckle Johndoh.
          Yes, occasionally improve, add a few years to that and you might amount to something.
