Installing modern front hub bearings

Post by dmdeaton » Mon Dec 30, 2019 9:32 pm

What fancy tool do you all use to tighten the front bearings up with? Aside from a open end wrench sitting on the flats at a 90 degree angle. The bearings spin freely on the threads and I know how tight to make the bearings. The bearing flat ends up too deep in the hub to wrench it.

Forgot to mention. Late model wire wheel spindles. Looks like wood spoke hubs are easy.

If you had a hubcap wrench for 1926-27, Ford made a change to fit that condition.

To me it would seem easy and cheap to weld 2 pices of flat stock on a old/worn/or off shore socket!! :D Bud.
