Non-Engine Rebuild #3 (Wheel Retainer and Bearing Install)

Ok, now we’re installing the All Balls bearing and oil seal kits I got from 4into1 on the 1975 CB750.  I’ve got the links to the specific kits below:

These kits are much cheaper than getting Honda OEM parts.  Also, it’s really convenient that they are kitted.  All Balls specializes in these parts, so you are assured high quality.  I really don’t think I’d go another way if I had it to do over again.

For this, you’ll also need the following:

  • bearing driver tool.  I picked up mine from Harbor Freight.  Works like a charm to drive all the oil seals and bearings on the moto.
  • The wheel bearing retainer wrench from Carpy’s Cafe Racers to reinstall the retainers.  It’s a great tool and Carpy is a hell of a nice guy.  Don’t mess around with anything else.  It’s definitely worth the 40 bucks.  Fit’s the two retainers (different sizes) perfectly and gives you leverage with the wrench.
  • There’s an o-ring that will need to be replaced as well.  The one in my wheel was ripped apart when I started to disassemble the wheel.  The PN is 91258-300-013.  Honda still makes it.

I’ve only shown you the rear wheel in the videos below because that’s the most complicated of the two wheels:

I made some mistakes in this video.  In my over excitement, I forgot the two oil seals along with the rear axle sleeve (PN: 42605-300-000).  Here’s me fixing it:

The CB750 is really coming along…more to come.

UPDATE:

Added some information for the front wheel:

For the front wheel, you’ll need another tool from Carpy’s Cafe Racers.

When completed, the front wheel should look like this:
