    1957 Rear Wheel bearings

    HI i just had an issue with my rear wheel bearings on my 1957 buick,i changed them about 4 years ago and ever since they have leaked a small amount off diff oil out the backing plate area,so i had them changed again this week and the mechanic said that the way the bearing is fitted as shown in the work shop manual the outer rubber oring on the bearing realy dosent seal to the outer axle tube so the oil was getting around there and leaking out. So he has fitted them the other way around so the oring is further in to the tube,this means the main inner oil seal fitted to the bearing is inwards to the diff and the more dust seal on the other side off the bearing is facing the backing plate and brake shoes,lets see whats happens now. the bearing is fitted the other way to the picture. So has any one else had this issue.? Scott

    1930 series 40 Steering Questions

    your welcome scott 1 the jacket can be removed,once the big nut is removed,the nut is there to preload the bearings in the steering gear., bearing outer race drops out then the jacket. 2 the ring covers the gap between the shaft and the wheel,its proberly swolen up (pot metal) glue it on. 3 on the big nut is a clamp bolt at the top loosening this allows the jacket to rotate. 4 basicly the gears are keyed its only going to go one way. 5 only book is the refference manual and adjustments and specs. hope this helps Scott
