Hi;

I'm about to change the rear wheel bearings on my 84 ASP. It seems pretty simple looking at the manual. I have a bearing removal tool, and a installation tool as well.

The manual says nothing about putting a little grease on the bearing pack when I press it in. Should I put it in clean?

Any comments or suggestions are always appreciated.

Thanks

Grant

Hello Grant and welcome to the forum.:waving: The new bearings are sealed and pre-packed with grease so adding more is a waste of time. Also, you don't want grease around the outside of the bearing where it sits in the wheel. You need a tight fit and don't want the bearing outer race to spin in the wheel, otherwise it will wear the wheel out.

Thanks for the info. Its going to rain the next couple of days, so now is a good time to do this. Cheers.

It doesn't hurt to chill the bearing in the freezer and heat the hub a bit to get the bearing to drop in easier.
