Rear hub buildup start and grease

Share:

While waiting on the return of all the suspension components from the galvanizer, there is not much to do. One thing is to prepare the rear hubs for buildup.

I started to put in the bearing tracks. The fulcrum ones are relatively easy.

The innner and outer bearing track is a different story though. Even with the proper bearing drifts it takes quite a bit of hammering to drive them home. After having done two, or rather one and a half i phoned the local garage with the question if i could use their press. That made it a lot easier! It did hurt a bit too see my hubs getting dirty again though.

Also did a bit of reading to choose a grease. I ended up with Kroon Oil Q9 It had the words 'high grade' and 'automotive' on it, came with a free grease gun, which looks a whole lot easier than my current one….
