1912 Models 34 10 & 25 Front Wheel Bearings

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)



    I successfully replaced the outer front wheel bearings in my 1912 Model 34 Buick.  Ball bearings with the threaded outside race are no longer made.  So, I found  two sets of TIMKIN # 1975 & #1931 tapered roller bearings that fit without spindle modifications.  These worked nicely on my Model 34 Roadster and may also work on Model 10 and other series 25 Buicks.

Nice work Mark.

Always great to find out "modern" replacements for unobtainable parts!

Thanks Dwight,

     The replacement bearings still didn't solve my "Death Wobble".  So, today I will be installing a new steering damper made for a VW Bug.  I'll post the results from that modification later  in a separate thread...
