Working On Getting the Car’s Hub Bearings Installed

Friday October 11, 2019 Guerneville CA.

New hub bearings

Today I planned to work on getting the car’s bearing installed and the car back together. I had a hard time getting started and did a bit of chair hopping until about 1 when I got it going and set things up to work on the bearings.

Here’s the bearings and grease ready to get all greased up.bearings

Axle’s a pain

I got the  bearings into the hub and after much work and patience I was able to get the axle into the bearings in the hub. That axle sure was a bear and I had to keep at it to get it into the hub.


Here’s my work area. Always seems to take more tools then I

Here’s the hub all back together and ready for the tire.hub



I still have a couple things I want to do to the car like fix the engine oil leak and tighten up my exhaust bolts but I think I’ll take a day off working on the car and do something else for a bit as I don’t really like to mechanic but I do what needs to be done.

I got the car back together in the evening and did a bit of chair hopping until it got dark as it was a nice evening out.

Getting that done was enough to get accomplished today.

Nice day.
