69 rat house

Rust or bling, we want to see it!

Postby nizmut » Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:42 pm

So I pulled the left hub and wheel bearings a few days ago. The hub is in pretty rough shape from someone setting up the wheel bearings with a chisel. That caused the o-ring on the locking hub not to seal, allowing water to enter, and rust to grow. After a lot of wire wheeling I think I can save it, but will need need to do some burr work and a secondary seal option.
So now into the fun stuff. Before you remove these 6 nuts, go buy LOTS of shop towels. First you remove the inner snap ring(You had to remove the outer one to remove the inner part of the locking hub), then remove the nuts.

The backing plate will slide off, then grab the spindle and it will slide off too.
Don't drop the stub axle, once it pivots it will fall out.

Welcome to the lots of towels part. I just slid the stub axle into the spindle and stored it in a safe place that I wouldn't be upset about the mess.

At this point it was dinner time, or any other excuse to not start cleaning that mess out.

OK, so after we got home from volunteering at the gem show I played in the shop a bit. Started by cleaning up the spindle and stub axle.

Then I pulled the snap ring and removed the roller bearing from the spindle. One of the cheap 4 for $10 pinch bars slid down the spindle can tap out the bearing. I have new bearings so didn't need to be overly careful. The tracta joint is a little rough and will take some cleaning up, but with the locking hubs I'll run it.

After that I pulled all the bolts from the seal retainer, and all the nuts from the kingpin bearing caps. I then used a brass drift and tapped the caps out from the inside. Don't loose the shims! Then grab the outer knuckle and give it a wiggle and the seal will pop out.

I then mucked all the grease out with rags and put it in the solvent pan. (If you are in California, Tractor Supply has a parts cleaning solution that still works)

After the outer knuckle is off it is easy to grab the inner axle and slide it out.

After the axle is out you can do some more grease mucking in the housing.

After I mucked out the housing I tapped out the races, I switched to a steel drift because I have new races and good brass drifts are expensive.

Then I had to go cook elk burger patties for my lunches next week.

Well I've been cleaning up a few little things running around in sweatpants and suspenders. But now it is time to address this.

Was hoping not to go to far in, but bearings are not too expensive. Gears look good, just flat spots on the races. Got to love locking hubs and deferred maintenance, remember to spin those front gears people.

Looks good. Just remember, the carrier bearings are unobtanium! Only still available in Colombia from old stock. I need to update the post with what my solution was, using similar bearings.

Well yesterday was a good day.
Started off by giving the cat his first bath :shock:

Then went to the gem club and slabbed up a bunch of jadite. Cleaning the saw got me ready for my next chore.

Since these came in
20170413_181908 (Medium).jpg

decided to knock out the long side seal. With that comes cleaning 48 years of grease out of the axle tube :shock: yeah, another roll of shop towels :lol:
After 8 hours of mineral oil, grease, and cleaning solvents it was dinner time.
Today it started raining way earlier then they said it would, so I'm hiding out, well except for going out in the pouring rain to clean a downspout out.
