700 grizzly front differential locker fork removal 2007
I have the front diff completely apart except for the left housing which still has one bearing and the fork along with the sliding gear which locks the diff. I have seen on the 660's you can unscrew the little shaft the fork rides on but on this 700, it looks to me like the shaft was inserted into the housing then the house was stamped to seal the shaft in. Been surprised that I cant find any discussion about this. The bearing is shot and has to be replaced. The service manual doesnt mention it and the parts list doesnt show anything but the entire housing available to buy. I bought a rebuild kit and it contains 3 bearings and counting this bearing, there are 4. How the hell do you get that fork and gear out to replace the bearing or is it not meant to be replaced except as the entire housing?
The first pic is a view of the shaft and the sliding fork, The other pic is what the end of the shaft looks like where it was inserted at the factory.
