Remove the conrod from the engine and place it in a vice (no need to remove the piston). Place the socket inline with the old bearing and tap it with a hammer to remove the old bearing (heating the conrod may make things easier if it proves difficult).
Heat the appropriate end of the conrod in order to make inserting the new bearing easier. Place the new bearing in position and gently tap it in place with a hammer (you may also use the socket once again).
Finally grind the mark portions and carefully check wwith your crank pin unitl you have a snug fit.
