Warn Premium Question

I've searched through all the threads and couldn't find any discussion on my question. I just put some Warn premium's in my 1994 Bronco. It was a textbook install and very simple and easy for my second time to go through this. However, there seems to be a very very slight amount of play between the cap and the hub (I'm talkin very slight lik emaybe half a centimeter). I've re-torqed all the cap screws and they were fine. Everything is tight, 4wd works with no noise, hubs turn easily, etc. I presume this is fine, but it seems to me that may allow for some dirt and/or water to enter inside. I also presume it is fine as I've been running it since Saturday and I don't see any signs of grease seeping out anywhere. Never seen this before, but then again never really paid this much attention to one before either!

Re: Warn Premium Question

If the cap that has the lock in it doesn't fit on the rotor tightly then you did somin' wrong. No other way.

Re: Warn Premium Question

Re: Warn Premium Question

I guess I will pull the caps off this weekend and look at everything again. I just can't imagine what though cuz everything worked so perfectly as far as the install - hub assebly slide on beautifully, snap ring went in just fine and the lock snapped right into it's groove. Yes, there were brand new o-rings and I used them. I however did not use antiseize. Do the cap screws tend to seize up? My stock ones came off just fine.

Re: Warn Premium Question

I don't think siezing is a problem with the Warn's but you can never be too safe. Those lil buggers can be a pain when they snap off or worse break your allen wrench. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]
