I had gotten home early enough today to do the bearing. Since the grease won't be here till tomorrow I thought I'd see if I had enough to do one side.

I did, just enough.

I had already gotten the old race out of the housing. I had kept one the last time I did this so I used it to slid the new one into place.


Then you need to install the large C clip. A set of internal/extrenal pliers is handy for that.



After I had cleaned the packaging grease off

I proceeded to pack the bearings with new grease. I find it easier to just put a blob in my left hand and roll, pack, squeeze the grease into the bearing with my right. It's fairly quick and effective.

Ahh more stock studs I don't need I guess I'll use the press since the hub is dismounted.



10 minutes later.


Now that I have everything together I can assemble. Put the bearing in the outside and install the oil shield. Then press the hub into the bearing.


After that flip it over and push the bearing onto the hub.
