Old Man Broke in TX
« on: June 18, 2016, 03:00:02 pm »
Spun a wheel bearing just east of dallas. Dude Man Bro Rob has the front wheel heading to a bearing house that's not open on Saturday but for a fee will. Whatever it takes. Called the local Kawi place. Hey I got a spun wheel bearing if I get the wheel to you can you guys get it changed out? Slim to none. Let me transfer you to parts. Hey you guy's have this wheel bearing in stock? Prolly not. Jeez. Can you give the bearing number and I can call around? Yeah but they won't know the Kawi Number. You can't give me the regular bearing number? Nope, just the kawi number. T'anks fur Nutin'. Maybe a little late but we'll be there. Sweatin at the shell station.

Did you remember to look in the Wiki for the part number?

Any boat/trailer shops around? Bet they'd have it in stock as they're pretty common trailer bearings. BTDT.

Didja know you can go hundreds of miles on failing/failed bearings? Ask me about Northern Exposure and Crows Nest Pass sometime.

Did you actually spin the race in the hub?

Panhandle? Yuck.

wheel bearings
front is 6005UU  oem, or 6005 2RS1 or 6005 2RSH (SKF replacement numbers)
rear is 6304UUC3 oem. or 6304 2RS1 or 6304 2RSH (SKF replacement) the "C3" designation is a standard for precision, SKF bearings are normally C3 unless specified otherwise...

both these bearings have buna-n rubber contact seals on both sides.

Sheesh. Don't make it easy for him, Keith. Part of the job of an AAD is to give the AD grief.   :rotflmao:

Trust me, I cause him so much grief, "How do ya put something on the calendar", "How do I log in again", "Can you explain again the event type", "have you put up the notice yet?", "yet?", "now?", "yet?"

I figured this one time I could try to be helpful instead.  ;D

Oops, missed that "east of Dallas" part, I thought he was up north along I40. Shoot, lots of possibilities for help where he's at... if he thinks outside the box.

Long shot here, and I know its dreadful to search on the road, but I've actually seen correct wheel bearing sizes at Ace Hardware, and a few other Hardware chain stores in the past, in this funky parts drawers on the wall.near cotter pins and misc screws and stuff....
Might not be the rubber sealed ones, but hey, a bearing is worth $5 to get back on the road.... the tough part is the tools on and to change it out... like a correct punch, a hammer, and a correct sized socket to use to pound the new bearing back in... of and the circlip pliers....

All else fails NAPA should have a bearing,... don't fret the seals, just redo the bearing when ya get home....

I talked to Rob on the phone.  They were able to get the correct bearings.  Rob knows the area and was able to get a store owner to come down and open up.  They have new parts installed and are on the move again.  I think their plan is to make Jackson Mississippi
by end of day.
