Warn Hub Instructions

I need a copy of the Warn hub instructions for the d30. I went to pull my hubs today to change the wheel bearings and they do not slide off like the original ones should according to the book (Chilton's).

My big question is: Do I remove the 6 cap screws on the face of the hub in order to remove them? I read somewhere that the hub will be damaged if.... but I can't remember if this is what they were warning me about.

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

With my D25 I had, you need to remove the 6 hex bolts to get to a snap ring then remove the outer bolts and you will be able to remove it. The knob is spring loaded so I don't think you have to worry about it. I don't have the axle anymore and can't find the instructions but, that's how you do it.

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

Remove the allen head cap screws that hold the hub body onto the housing. Now you have access to the hex head bolts that hold the body to the spindle. Remove those, and you can now continue servicing the wheel bearings in the normal fashion.

What they normally warn about is turning the hib dial while it's not on the vehicle. Why? I dunno. I've done it before with no ill effects...

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

Thanks! That sure makes me happy. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] P.O. I have no idea what shape the stub axle is going to be in, but guessing by how bad the bearing is on the passenger side, I am pretty sure I will be buying a new one. As Fred Flintstone would say "RAZA FRAZA"

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

OK. I got the hub off. Thanks for the help. Now I need to know what size the lock nuts are on the axle. Does anyone know?

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

Just went through this on my D30. Since I did not have the right socket, I just used a dull chisel and a hammer. It should come loose fairly easy. Make sure that that the lock tab is bent off the nut tho.
If yours is in as bad a shape as mine was you will definitely need to replace your stub axles. I lucked up on a used set on E-Bay for about 50 bucks.
Good Luck

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

2 1/8". You can buy the socket from Quadratec for about $8, some auto parts stores have them too. It's a thin wall socket, so don't go spending lots of $$$ on a 2 1/8" regular socket - it won't work.

You can use a chisel and hammer, but then there is no way to check the torque when you put them back on.

Re: Warn Hub Instructions

Thanks for the info. You would think that a city the size of Green Bay would have an auto parts store that stocked those sockets. Believe me, there isn't one. Ordered one from 4WD Hardware (plus a bunch of other stuff I didn't really need [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]). Sitting for a week waiting for a freakin' socket.
