Re: [DML] Play in rear wheel bearing



Thanks John.  I dc have a 20 ton press.  I first pressed the wheel
bearing into the hub carrier by its outer race.  I was able to do this
with a spare "outer race" from my old rear wheel bearing.  I then
installed the snap ring.  Then I got a piece of pipe that was sized to
the inner race (just a tad larger on the inner diameter of the race so
it wouldn't get stuck on the driveshaft).  I placed it underneath the
inner race of the installed wheel bearing, and pressed the driveshaft
downward into the wheel bearing while the pipe supported the inner
race underneath.  

It seemed to work OK, but I'm going to torque the nut (as Martin
suggested) and see if I have any play afterward.
