Wheel bearing and other issues

Well...last saturday I went out for lunch. Ate there, went out, started the truck, went to back out...and no reverse ...put it in neutral and pushed it...so i went to go to the parts store for some snowmobile parts and i then blew the left front wheel bearing.

So i talked to my mechanic and he said i most likely blew out the band for reverse. Guess its time to do my manual conversion (and luckily I found a 6 speed and all the parts for the conversion) so at the end of March..bye bye auto...bring in the manual

and oh..anybody have any advice on pullin off the wheel bearing? I know its pretty straight forward, but if theres any tricks or tips, they'd be great to know.

Use a socket as leverage but nudge the wheel. Dont put too much pressure if you do more then likely it'll blow a seal.But i used a big hammer,wedge,and a deep socket (i think) if not a reg socket will get-r done. and the new one went right in. Before you put the new one in get some fine grit sandpaper and sand it alittle. Mine actually came out in 2 peices and all the bearings just fell out Thats what i wanted to do to my 12v but couldnt find any haha

got the wheel bearing out and replaced on saturday...i talked to a couple people and they said to make it easy, take the 4 bolts out halfway, then take a socket and short extension and put it on the bolts. Then have a second person there to watch that as you turn the wheel, the socket and extension hit up against the part of the axle that the knuckle connects to. I did the bottom right and the top left bolts and the hub assembly popped right out.
