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.
