……….Well, maybe it was me a little………but alote IS going on!
got in a pair of split shafts and knuckles to service. Found one knuckle and hub on one side out of tolerance. The fresh knuckle you see has been spray welded and turned back down to tolerance. Here’s the drive shafts rebuild with one knuckle ready to ship.…… Here’s the hub I was explaining needs replacement, we know this because one bearing set has come off the hub easily while the second is still pressed in placeThey were greased well and the seals were holding…..it’s just the case that the inner bearing loaded to the point it spun and reduced the diameter of the hub………hey, it happens over time and time is one of our hidden enemies.
The hub and knuckle both will be replaced because of this wear. Some might say this is a sign of a weak assembly…….dude, there’s no president of any vehicle to last this long being expected to do its job perfect! Compared to how old and maybe how many miles that it’s been driven its right to find a few components worn……the entire coach is living past its intended life span….by 4 times!
If your front hubs are loose….add to your investment in fun and have them attended to. They will not get better…….
This is a survey, please give me your thoughts: All of you must know by now our project almost always end up being fitted with our single aluminum fuel tank. Hey but we live in America and we are all free to see things the way we like. We all know our steel 25 gallon fuel tanks are susceptible to rust using Ethanol laced fuels. We all must have a fuel container on board that won’t kill us.
As you saw here recently, Abbey Normal made a great tank shaker to get all the flack out of our aluminum manufactured tanksThis would also be a valuable way to epoxy line original fuel tanks which rely on a thorough sloshing of the sealing compounds to cover all surfaces in the tankSO……..heres the survey question…..Do you feel there is a need to refurbish original steel fuel tanks properly? Please let me know your thoughts.…….
Note to come later……….. See ya then
