They are very difficult to remove from the hub without separating them, which damages the balls and races if that happens. Hence the T designation. Jul 29, Having trouble posting or changing forum settings? If the inner bearing that is used has the necessary 2mm radius to clear the base of the stub axle, and if the whole assembly is shimmed properly, using the spacer between the two bearings following the MGB shimming procedure. The MGB shimming procedure is shown on the next page.
I checked the spacer and it is exactly 1. Most of us know that as the tire normal force vertical down load or weight increases the tire grip increases. Finally there are some original old stock which would be stamped accordingly and apparently some new bearings that are supposedly made to original specs, I have never seen any of these so I can not comment. They can be strengthened up by fitting a suitable spacer in between of the correct dimension, is this how you fitted yours? Bob, To be pedantic a bog standard and won't be face adjusted but can be ordered as such if the correct suffixes are appended which vary from maker to maker. The shape of this "pipe" also smooths out the section changes along the length of the stub axle, helping to minimize the stress riser at its base.

Given that the not so proper ones of the past have cost a lot less I can live with a considerably shorter bearing life. The rubber O-ring must be a neoprene rubber part, designed for use in fuel systems. The fitting will occasionally leak around the threads, a little Teflon tape will help seal that area. Both were now OK. That is why I suggested looking in the archives.

Description: I thought you must have been sleeping during the previous lengthy discussions here! On Negative Ground cars: Firstly you need to be able to remove the hub and bearings in one piece to sort the machining out and secondly once the centre piece has been machined then next time you fit "normal" bearings there will be a good chance that they will be too tight and will destroy themselves prematurely. There is no equivalent replacement from QH.
