Wheel bearings

I went to the store to get a set of wheel bearings and they asked me if i had auto hubs or manual hubs. I had autos but swapped them for the Warn manuals. I dont see how it would matter if all you need to swap the hubs is hubs (3 screw hubs excluded). I'm gonna grab the ones for auto hubs.

Re: Wheel bearings

I have switched from autos to manuals too. When I changed my bearings a few weeks back, they asked the same questions. I said manuals, thinking that it really wouldn't matter too. When I got home, they were the wrong ones. Ended up having to make an extra trip to get the right ones( for the autos). [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: Wheel bearings

it matters! i'm not sure if the bearings are different, probably not, but for some reason the inner wheel seal is quite different between the auto and manual lockout trucks. i learned that the first time my wheel bearings went out.

oh, just checked autozone's computer online: outer is SET45 for both, but inner for manual is SET38 whereas auto inner is SET37. seal for autos is 4250 and manuals use a 710091, though 4250 is listed as an alternative for manuals too? the seals are wildy different, that 710091 looks similar to the axle seal on the rear axle housing, while the 4250 looks like a timing cover crank seal. those are all Timken part #s, BTW. i dont know why there are differences, but apparently they exist. is that all the info you were looking for?

Re: Wheel bearings

Yeah removable tops kick a$$. I was lookin for a Bronco before i got my truck.

Sometimes when i know a part ## i'll go in and ask for it they just look at me, cock there head ever so slightly to the side like the RCA dog and proceed to ask me what year?


That was exactly the info i was lookin for. Thank you VERY much cuz i dont have a parts runner so i have to get everything together befor I start workin on the truck. I hate puttin it back together to run back to the store.

I'll just go with the original plan to grab the ones for the auto hubs.

Re: Wheel bearings

that's interesting Muddy, thanks for the info. RE:"the seals are wildy different, that 710091 looks similar to the axle seal on the rear axle housing, while the 4250 looks like a timing cover crank seal"

As you may remember, I did my hubs not long ago while replacing rotors and pads. I must have ended up with the 4250 style...if I read you correctly, this style is like stamped steel with a little rubber lip. Carefully pound in place and the way it is made in a steel "U" it kinda crushes, with the rubber lip left for sealing.

the parts store people did not, as I recall, ask what hub I had. Also, as I recall, I again believe you may have something with the inner bearing/race being the potential difference as it sits very close to the inner seal, which I just described. I cannot see how the outer bearing could possibly be any different.

Re: Wheel bearings

Did you tell them the axle was out of an 89 f150? i cant see it making a difference, but then again, i didnt think that manual vs. automatic would make a difference either

86 body/frame 89 fuel ignition 94 motor 89 trans/drivetrain
89 wiring/pcm. Just wait till i get the 90 F250. Talk about confusing.
