That L67 is one beautiful piece of work. And there ain't no education like gettin' in there and doin' it. Wow! 2 hours is fast. Would have taken me all day. The bearing caps can be removed with flat jaw vise grips (e.g., model 10R) around the bolt holes, (jaws padded with aluminum or leather to prevent marring) and worked back and forth while pulling up. Don't clamp in the middle of the cap by the saddle, it can distort the bearing bed.
