Attach the extension to the nacelle crane. Then fix a block and tackle to this.

Remove encoder.

Remove rotor end cover.

Disconnect slip ring cables and place hydraulic pack between slip ring and generator and remove the Slipring

Remove rotor housing and place on bed plate.

Remove generator plate.

Remove the bearing cover by loosening the bolts at the front of the generator.

Insert the fixing bolts/pins into the front cover and attach the clamp.

Screw bolt into the shaft end and attach the enerpac.

Heat the bearing slowly using a torch. Ensure compliance with GE Hot Work Permitting Process.

Position the clamp in order that the enerpac can drive against it.

Pump the enerpac while ensuring the bearing is freeing itself and moving along the shaft.

With bearing free, remove it from the shaft taking care as it will still be warm. (ensure correct PPE is in place)

Heat new bearing gently using a torch and place on the shaft.
