New bearings, now what???
I am new to posting on the board, read many posts but never signed up. Now I had to. I have an 83 CJ7. After installing a new Weber carb, the Jeep was so quiet, I noticed the grinding sound from the front right wheel. The grinding quickly turned into a screeching noise. I figure that the bearings were going. Removed the rotor and inspected bearings, found thin metal slivers in the grease and wear on the race and rollers. Not severe but they were old and needed replacing. Put everything back together, drove around the block - still grinding. Gave up for the day and went home. When backing out of the driveway, ther was an awful screech. Grinding comes and goes on the road, when I turn to the left, it almost dissappears. Has anyone had this problem? Any ideas on further trouble shooting?
