I do it the exact same way, but with grease instead- it's just hydraulics. I suppose the argument could be made that his method is more of a 'green' method! lol
It does make me wonder who thought of using bread for this.... and what else do they use bread for??!

Well, since grease will work and bread will work it begs the question: Will peanut butter work?

I was changing my clutch out last winter and my generic pilot bearing removal tool wasn't working. Doing a search on this forum, I came across this method from an old post. Stuffed some bread in the hole, inserted a deep socket with the end closed off, hit it 3 or 4 times with a mallet and wahla! Out popped the pilot bushing. So much cleaner than using grease. I have found all kinds of funky tricks on this forum which have saved me time and headache.

Yup, used the bread trick to get my original pilot bushing out as it was STUCK. I only had whole grain with actual sunflower seed bits baked inside so I opted to mix in some PB Blaster.

Disgusting mess, but it worked

Old school plumbing trick is to use bread in copper pipe to hold back any water so you could solder a joint.

Just remember to remove the screen on your faucet after you turn the water back on.

Learned this the hard way.
