Drive out cage carefully with a hammer.
The cage will take on the heat of the outer race quickly and then fit tight. If cage does not fit correctly on lower circlip and in contour of outer race, do not attempt to force it into correct position. Instead drive it out carefully, let it cool down and install it again.
2. Insert cage for one-way clutch. Heat outer race to approx. 150 °C (300 °F), which requires that the hotplate itself has a temperature of 190 °C (375 °F). Take hold of cage on upper collar with 2 pliers, remove quickly from hotplate and install in outer race. Make sure short sides of cage retaining tabs are aligned with matching contours in outer race (arrow). If necessary, turn accordingly immediately after installing.
3. Install springs and rollers. Check for correct installed position. Seen clockwise the spring will be in front of the roller.
