Replaced bearings, retainer and seal in rear axle. After some numnuts did the brake conversion, they didnt check the torque (i dont think he owns a torque wrench) on the plate retaining the axle. I dont know wether this caused my bearings to fail, but I did have the axle moving in and out about 40mm. Now, after using the torque wrench to spec, I have no movement . HOORAY Its very exciting to be able to work on your own vehicle ( with lots of help, thankyou mr wooders & brookers brakes)
