I also got my front drums mounted and realized I didn't do much of a tutorial on the rear drums or putting the pedals in. So I figured I'd do it for front drums.
|Cleaned, painted, ready to go!|
|Installed the inner bearing race. Used a special tool to seat it properly.|
|The ball bearing rides around that surface.|
|Packed the cavity with grease.|
|Greased and put the ball bearing in place.|
|The other race makes a perfect circle for the bearing to ride around.|
|Installed a grease seal to keep all that goop where it needs to be.|
|There is an outer bearing as well, it goes by the same process.|
|Rigged up the reservoir temporarily as it usually rests on the body, not the pan.|
|Headed back to the store!|
Should also have my tie rod in tomorrow so I can finish up the steering. Then I need to wash my wheels so as to not mess up my nice finish....and I should be rolling....and maybe stopping!
