yes sealed bearings for sure.....


i would have had to wait a long time to get an axle made up with roller bearings so to be honest this will be fine and it will get me back on the road quickly and safely which is the most important option

May be worth keeping the good hub from the original axle as a spare, along with a big socket and an even bigger length of pipe. Oh and a new hub nut.

Not too bad a day. Met up with Lucky Ribster. First off went to see the start of the Jet Ski charity run. Brave boys and gals going round the IOW in wet wetsuits. Then it was a quick pop down to the Needles to meet them coming from the other way. Saw quite a few RIBs but struggled with the elusive Ospreys

Pic 1 shows the Jet Skis forming up at HMS Daedalus.

Pic 2 shows the Jet Skis rounding the Needles.

Pic 3 is not something that should be done to any car.
