screw puller to assemble the front hub into the wheel bearing
video at the bottom of the page
It's no use hammering the hub into position with a new wheel bearing, you will only damage it. This tool pulls the hub into the bearing.
The handle has a diameter on it and fits where the hub nut would fasten. The sliding collar fits to the inner race, tighten and align everything,
and pull the hub in. Will fit the Acadiane size of bearing too. Turn the sliding collar around and finish off the pulling.
Overhauling a front hub unit. Removal of the hub, insertion of the hub, inserting the 2 oil seals. The tools required.
When mounting the oil seals in the vise with the tool, the tool can slip out of position slightly. The 1.5mm deep landing which places the seal to the correct depth needs to always be central. Here is the new modified tool which prevents any movement off centre. The drift insertion part does not need to be used and I have discontinued it.
New part for the tooling Insert it into the bearing Place an oil seal into position
You can see the 1.5mm step/landing Tool ready to press the seal in Place in the vise and tighten
You can see the depth of the oil seal
You will need a vise that opens to at least 90mm to be able to use this tool. An alternative way to insert the 2 oil seals is to utilise a G lamp and a couple of pieces of flat plate, top and bottom. This way of inserting the seals is far better than hammering them into position, The correct tools make all the difference.
The final thing to do, is to insert the wheel hub plate with the special screw pulling tools.
