Re: [DMCForum] More rear wheel-bearing nonsense

the new bearing before.

That wheel bearing (front) that I repacked went bad.  I
might have swapped the races side-to-side.  The ball
bearings got all mixed up for sure.  I since heard that you
aren't supposed to rearrange things when you reassemble.
Duh.  I should have thought of that.  But then you aren't
supposed to repack this kind of bearing anyway.

Put the car in the air, crawl under it, drop the car
quickly.... no I mean spin the rear tires and listen.  It
could be a wheel bearing or a CV joint or a bearing in the
tranny.  Mine has a bad bearing on the tranny.  It rattles
all the time and sometimes howls at around 45mph.  I expect
to drive from Florida to Maryland and then to Pigeon Forge &
home on that bearing. :-)  I'll get around to fixing it
someday.

Mike C called today and said that you had to replace your
rear hub carrier.  Ouch.  I got a pair sitting on my front
porch.  If it were truck parts, I might be a red neck.  But
these are exotic car parts.  So what am I?  (No, seriously,
this is not a trick question.)
