I read somewhere on here that if you get your block hot tanked , you should replace your inter. shaft bearings. I am rebuilding my 2.5 and having some machine work done. I planned on having it hot tanked after. Should I replace the bearings? If so does anyone have some dimensions on the tool used to put them in so I can build one.

I would replace them regardless...cheap insurance. A standard cam bearing tool *should* be able to do the job....it's the same principle...

you need a special adapter for the small bearing. if youre having a shop clean the block they can easily replace the bearings.

If you have a junk intermediate shaft or just a extra one you dont care about you can do what I did.......I took my junk one and just snapped it in half and used it as a install tool. It works perfect. To reach the inner just use a socket to fit over the shaft with a extension and tap it in with a hammer. Works mint every time. Just MAKE SURE THE OIL HOLE IS LINED UP ON THE INNER!!
