    Dang logging trucks!

    Yes. The unit comes complete with the seal installed. You prep the spindle like usual, then just start the hub on. Line up the key with the keyway on the spindle and push it home. Then just grab the wheel studs and turn the entire unit clockwise.....it threads itself home. Remove that outer...

    Dang logging trucks!

    Darren, you ever try these Stemco Trifecta hubs? Being in the middle of the Marcellus gas patch, we see a pant load of trucks with two pant loads of abused and neglected trucks. I probably replace 75-100 hubs every year. Tried multiple brands, but since I found these Trifecta’s a couple of...

    Dang logging trucks!

    That word is too big for me, but it was close to a spindle replacement. Spindle cleaned up to where I am comfortable putting it back together, but the hub had to go. Races and bearings were junk, plus 7 out of 8 axle studs spun out, pulling some threads with them. They had 4 aluminum hubs on...

    Dang logging trucks!

    So today was filled with work that was scheduled in before this Freight-shaker showed up. I did take 15 minutes to back it half way into a bay, put both drive axles up on stands, and get the wheel speed up to about 65mph. It was smooth as silk, so that eliminates a bunch of stuff. Tomorrow...
