View Full Version : Need Help installing wheels/bearings
01-31-2007, 11:25 PM
I bought a pair of Mission HE5500 off of somebody and no wheels, bearings or spacers came with it. I recently had an old pair of CCM RH75 skates that i took the wheels bearings and spacers off and started putting them on my new Labeda wheels for outdoor skating (just bought a cheap set of wheels to practice outside and figured i'd just use the old bearings since they are just to practice on) I got the spacers and bearings in the wheels but now the wheels won't fit in the chassis. Is there something that i'm doing wrong?

You physically can't get the wheel into the chassis? It's not like it's in but the axel can't get through right, you can't get the wheel in place?
If that's the case, I'd say maybe you don't have the bearings pushed all the way in. Sometimes when installing new bearings I come across that problem and getting a wheel into place is a bit difficult. Then I just put the wheel on a hard flat surface and put all my weight on it to ensure the bearing is flush on both sides.

it just seems like the bearings are too wide and on the chassis of my mission skates where the axles go thru on the inside there is a lip that sticks out which makes the wheel/bearings not fit.
