I got these hellcats hubs I was trying to use on my hypertrucks. but they are binding.
split in half each bearing fits on the axel no problem. together however they bind to the axel. This suggests the bearings are not seated our out of alignment.
How do I reseat/adjust these bearings? I see no way to get behind them and drive them out.
One of the four hubs fits on the axels without binding. the other three do not.
all of the hubs fit on MBS trucks without binding.
the easiest method is to attempt to reseat the bearing square from the outside of the hub with a socket, the second easiest is to find an appropriate socket to the inner race and tippy tap on it from the inside… don’t go blacksmith on it… go gentle and rotate the bearing a 1/4 turn or so after every tippy-tap… it SHOULD start to come out…
if it doesn’t move, don’t fukkit up…
just lemme know if it seats from the outside, or becomes unseated when motivating it from the inside…
there are still plenty of options
Zach has a thought… try all hubs in all configurations… I’d still attempt to fully seat the bearing first in any case
