Wheel Bearing and Loctite update + CV grease

Recommended Posts

I had a roller bearing fail, it sounded like I had rocks being crushed and ground,

When I took it apart, I found the Loctite I used did it's job excellently, I had to heat the outer race which was still firmly locked in place till I blued it with an acetylene torch and then drive it out with hammer and punch.

I didn't notice this problem until the second time I noticed the smell of brakes or clutch, maybe 100 Km. When i checked, my wheel was so hot, I couldn't touch it, trailer time!!! The bearing had allowed hub to tilt and it rubbed the brake pads rather hard and heated up, it was smoking when I stopped. The delay in noticing the problem allowed the hub to wear against the bearing and it created a slight ridge on the inner part of where the hum meets the bearing which I ground off being careful not to grind on the flat part where the bearing seats.

In the process of replacing bearing, when I pulled the outer CV, the axle, only, came with it, I exposed the outer CV joint and the grease around it appeared to have dried up, I added a bunch of new grease and it moved freely again in all directions.

I installed a used ball bearing that I had cleaned and grease and I'm up and running and have no wobble in either of my rear wheels.

I like the yellow loctite and I like roller bearings!!

"Used ball bearing " You sir are a maverick, and I salute you! Good old red neck engineering. Of course we need pics!

Well, it's already back together and running, the " used" one the was replaced by a roller bearing which was the first to be loctited into place, so I don't have any photos, sorry. The inner races of the ball bearing can be popped out which is what I did to clean them and re-grease them. When I come to wheel bearing, I believe in having spares on hand. It sure paid off to have saved the old ones and I was lucky that I had the correct seal.

      I bought a Titan Explorer back in 2012 and have had nothing but electrical problems with it ever since. It mostly sits in the garage and I thin I have 160 hours on it since I got it. The place I bought it from is gone and although I suspect it is a Chinese or Japanese I cannot find any service manuals on it.
      I'll post up some pics in the general forum in the hopes that someone can point me in the right direction. What I would like to do is to pull ALL of the wiring out and start over with bare bones... nothing but essential operations.
      This looks like a good group so hopefully I can help as well as be helped.

      Hi, I think I just bought a Husun 450 that is in need of TLC. It is leaking badly from the shifter shaft (located at left foot). I can not find a part number for the seal(s) 3 came off of the shaft.
       
      If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful 🙏

      We like taking our dogs out with us when we ride.. I had them in the bed and my wife has noticed how hot the bed floor and rubber mat gets from the exhaust pipe. Is there a way to cool the bottom of the bed short of running through 2' deep water?? It seems factory pipe insulation doesn't have enough pipe coverage..

      My right rear wheel bearing has gone bad and made lots of horrid noises before I got it into the garage, I'm trying to break the 36mm nut so I can get at everything, but so far, all I have broken is my 1/2" breaker bar, I guess 6' of extension pipe was a bit too much - busted the 1/2" square piece, banged my wife's shin and bent a lug bolt that I'll have to replace. Called a friend and he came over with his 3/4" drive set and broke the nut loose while I stood on the brakes with 4 X 4 and lockers. Any advanced advice for what I'm going to find, I'm done with it for the day and going to go play with the grand kids.
