Hi all, anybody taken one apart to replace the bearings in a torque tube? It looks similar to a Maserati 4200 Spyder but it's about 3-4 inches shorter, which is what I'm looking for. The 4200 version is not possible to take apart, officially anyway. Rgds///Thomas
It has long tubular white plastic spacers that keep the drive shaft in place. Tapping the shaft out from one end will get the spacers, shaft and bearing out. I don't recall replacing the bearing itself so there must not have been much to it.
please find attached an extract of spare parts catalogue of 575M, i hope that help you, remove the complete connecting tube is medium easy, is necessary disconnect the gearbox and shift back it (or remove) in order to take off the splined shaft, after that you remove bolts from clutch bell and the pipe go down.
To replace the ball bearings I think need special tool, but possible you can made by yourself.
