counter sprocket and wheel bearings

getting ready to change these, is there anything special i should know(besides the other post by BD on here), i know i need a 27mm deep socket for sprocket,(6 point or 12 point work better), torque spec of front and rear axles is 81ft. lbs. what about countershaft nut and any other nuts that need torqued. by the way the prices of these bearings Big Daddy discussed has went up to about 14 to 15 dollars each now. and Dean at Bearingworks will know which ones u need. what tools work best for removing these bearings? any other help would be appreciated

sure blame the price increase on me

i'm not sure if i addressed what tools i used, in any case there's only a couple of ways and one of which requires some 'special' tools costing a fair amount of dosh or cheese if you will and the other was the less expensive way BUT just as effective.
A 2lb hammer & punch......I purchased a 12" tapered punch with a flat nose that i inserted through one end and once close to the bearing on the other end you'll need to push / tap the bearing spacer (be gentle its aluminum and will gouge easily) to one side to allow access to the bearings inner race and begin striking the punch and work the entire inner race so that it pushes the bearing out evenly / straight. Once thats done removing the opposite bearing is rather easy and can actually be removed with a socket & extension however the socket must be the exact size of the inner race and begin the bangin caveman technique.

side note: heat could also be used to make the job easier but not too much.
