Let's see, it is August 11, 2023.  I just re-read this whole thread.  It brought back a lot of good memories.  It still reads well and has a fair amount of humor.  I love that we did this thread.  :USA:  :occasion-xmas:

I just finished one for my friend Tim (VT Tim) thanks to Steve and others info here it was a breeze except for a couple of issues.

The pictures of the bearing installation in an early post was wrong and of course I installed the bearings in the wrong places so I ruined them getting them back out with the welder lol.

 The original early seal style axle tubes are quite a bit longer than the later ones with the outer type axle seal. I replaced his and had to trim them quite a bit, I forget how much.

After about 10 beers I got all of the gears in correctly.

Do a search of this site for threads about “pulling hubs” or “hub puller” and you’ll find a lot of information

WHX??

Get a bearing collar on back of them. DO NOT pull by the ears. Ask me how I know.
