wheel bearings


Recommended Posts

How hot should the wheel bearing get- i have adjusted mine as there was some play in the front ones, and after a drive, it is hot to touch.

I didn't check how hot it was before i adjusted them. They are now well greased- should i worry?

It isn't too hot to keep your finger on it, but hot nonetheless!!

I did them up as it says until it starts to bind, then undid it a bit.

How quickly is it getting hot? Warm after a long drive I wouldn't be too worried about, hot after a couple of miles would suggest it is too tight.

have backed it off a touch- much better now after a 10 mile hard drive.

Much more confident that it is ok now!!

i have a similar query...the hub caps(the brass ones)on the rear wheels on my 110...become bearably hot...after a drive....whereas the hub caps on the front wheels remain at the normal surrounding temperature or slightly warm

I have not opened anything,like you did but this peculiar thing i noticed after i read your query here.

Any ideas as to whats happening...and what i should do?

cheers

Adi :)

you can take the rear half-shafts out and grease up the bearings. Might be just a little dry!
