QUICK HOW TO--WHEEL BEARINGS FRT & REAR
#1
Decided to do a few things in prep for installing the new susp. Here's how to do new wheel bearings for the front & rear..I will finish up this how to when we do the install..The front wheel bearings have a seal on the back that has to removed first..once thats done you can remove the race..Just lightly tap it out with a punch taping at 12 o'clock 6--3 & 9 till it comes out..do the same for the front race..To install the new race I just use the end of a wooden hammer..Just do the same for install as removal till the new race is seated..For the rear The easy way is to cut the bearing & bearing retainer with a cutoff wheel don't cut all the way thru..After you make the 1st cut make 1 one more 180 degrees from it..Put a chisel in the slot...tap & it should break right in half..More to come. (I cleaned up the steering box too today)
