RE: ZF 285A shop manual
I can easily fabricate special pullers, mandrels etc in my shop. Heat isn't a problem here, dry ice is more of one but doable. Being a Kiwi (and marine engineer and latterly Volvo mechanic) I ask how can I rather than why can't I. I will make it happen, even if I have to measure every goddamn component and factor in new bearing measurements to adjust preload on bearings. Downangle gear settings are pretty much standard redlead marking and a bit of time.
