    I am going to be changing the bearing kit on my Steyr ,I understand this is held with high strength thread lock.
    What's the best way to remove and install the new kit?
    Thanks Simon

    All that I have done have cracked off without a problem using a decent quality allen key. You could always use a bit of heat if needed, but should just undo.

    The head of the bolt churns up very easily, I watched Harry Preston struggling to get the one on my gun off took him about 45 mins, in the end he cut it off with a dremmel. Be careful when fitting the new one according to him there is a slight bevel on the roller.

    Bevel

    So which way does the bevel go if it's there?
    I would have thought if there were a bevel it would be machined into the bottom of the piece it bolts to.

    The flat surface goes on first onto the muzzle tube, the shortest of the three.
    The other 2 are the same.
    Ensure that the last one has the countersunk facing downward for the screw to fit into.
    When tightened up they will be a small amount of play about 1.5 mm between the rollers.
    Use super glue to lock it in place but don't put too much on as it will seize the bearings up if it runs off the threads.
    When you've done it spray some WD or V 90 onto it to free it off, just in case.

    Should all 3 move?

    I've only got 2 that move. The lower one, the middle one... does the top ring move then?
