Hello Suggestions required... I have rebuilt a few rear hubs now but I have a problem on the offside rear. If I jack up the car and then hold the wheel at top and bottom I get slightly more in and out play than if I check the same holding the wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock positions. It can't be the adjustment of the hub bearings because that would give the same play all round. The bearings are adjusted to about 0.002 - 0.003 inch and doesn't seem to make any difference if I fit the hub carrier to the trailing arm 90 degrees different. I can't see or feel any play between the hub carrier and the back plate/trailing arm or where the trailing arm fixes to the chassis. I suspect maybe it is between the hub carrier and the trailing arm. I fitted the uprated studs a while ago (vast improvement) and take care to use a small torque wrench to not over tighten the nuts holding the hub carrier. From memory this is about 12 ft lb - hardly anything. Is there a simple way of checking the backplate or trailing arms faces or is there another possible cause? Problem is that it might only be a couple of thou movement that is the cause. Keith
I came home from the Southdown Group Summer Event, this evening, with a vibration from the RHS rear wheel. At home I took off the brake drum and it was not the brakes but three of the wheel studs were loose. Is it advisable to remove the hub and have the welder fix it or should I approach Revington who have an answer? I am not sure of the detail of their kit. Does anyone know or have experience of their repair kit? It looks as if a new hub is not available, from Moss any way and mine is the original which came with the car as new, so I am keen to keep it.. What is the best repair? Thanks Richard & B.
