front wheel bearing problem

Recommended Posts

bob1959

I went and pulled my front wheels on my HB212 because I was going to try the needle bearing trick on my spindles to get my steering eased up. I pulled the wheels and noticed my wheel bearings were pretty rusty. They were replaced 2 years ago when I restored the tractor but the new bearings do not have the rubber seal on the inside bearing like the old one did. What can be done to seal the inner bearing up from water and dirt?

Get a set of Bearing Buddies like are used on boat trailers. They have a size that fits. Give them a couple squirts of grease every time you use the tractor. That totally solves front bearing problems.
