Soverign 18H wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine has a Soverign 18H with power steering. Product code 1692798. He wants help repacking the front wheel bearings and he thinks that the last time it was done a special tool was required to remove and or install the wheels or bearings. Can anyone shed some light on the subject and save me from buying a manual for a tractor I'd love to own but probably never will. Thanks. Ron

Why repack front wheel bearings yearly when you can replace the dust covers with a Bearing Buddy and just keep pumping grease through the bearings and keep the wheel hub full of grease to keep moisture out. Before installing the Bearing Buddy, pack grease in between the inner and outer bearings.

Ron, Just pull the dust cover (hub cap) off, and remove the set collar. There may be a special tool for the dust cover removal, but a rolling pinch bar or water pump pliers work fine. The set collar is held on by a single allen screw. Bill may be right about a Bearing Buddy, but that takes the fun out of working on these tractors.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
