Sorry I don`t give a F ! about testing your trailer on safe land etc.

I don`t normally shout on Ribnet unless I`m annoyed, but please people if you don`t even know which way a bearing goes into a hub and yes it is blindingly obvious, if you go back to first principles, never mind needing an engineering degree, then leave the job to a pro.

Yes I`m 30 years a mechanic and the answer is, single bearing unit, anyway you want, unless modern car with magnetic abs pickup in which case grey race cover in.

All taper bearings are cup to the pressure bearings. Thus N]B>S<B[H.
Nut.washer.bearing.cup.stop.cup.bearing.washer.hub .
Also please bear (pun) in mind that all taper roller bearings are designed for a limited end float. If you tighten them up they will, repeat will disintergrate.

Apologies for bad grammer, spelling and the rest of the rubbish but I`ve just finished 2*9 hour back to back shifts.

P.S. I assume everyone can understand that the symbol > means race wide part to the outside, and < V/Vsa.

P.P.S. Not rocket science after all.

You must be joking..... Leaving the job to a pro...I will tell you what I have found when leaving the job to a pro ( talking cars)

- waste rag left on exhaust manifolds
- tools left on rocker covers
- bolts that had fallen down and left on the bottom engine cover
- loose wheel nuts


ect

The problem these days is to find a decent pro. And going back to my error- it was a moment on inattention - and I am sure there are a lot of pros who have made similar mistakes

Unless, of course, NASA use double taper bearings... in which case it could quite legitimately be regarded as rocket science!

Agreed.

Not strictly true Nyarla. In some applications they are preloaded to remove play. But, of course, that's not normally the case on a wheel bearings.
Go and get some sleep.

As you were not there when the wheel came off ( you didn even read one of my previous posts when I declared quite openly that I was testing the trailer on a deserted part of where I lived) - you really jump to conclusions as regards my competence. And as regards he conical bearings i use, its dead easy to put them in the wrong way.. I can assure you.

As it seems that you only concerned with your own blatent superiority in all matters - I will not bother in the future to reply to your vindictiveness. I would suggest that you look at yourself in the mirror......

Ok, in answer to your criticism, I have re-read, thoroughly, your previous posts and, surprisingly, cannot find any reference to "testing on a deserted part of where I lived". If you would like to point me to the relevant post on this thread, then I'll apologise to you.
The post below is the one I read.

The wheel went sailing pass me
As for the towing, you think it is right to admonish someone who tows within the law and the limits set by the vehicle manufacturer yet openly boast about towing a "barely legal" rig at excessive speeds.

So you think of it as "vindictive", when someone points out the utter garbage that you spout off, do you? I look in the mirror every day and although I might not like what I see, at least I can say that despite my faults, which I am well aware of, I don't live in a fantasy world. I have to say that JW was pretty close to the mark. Manos. There was another chap who just kept digging. Perhaps the Fat Ginger One summed it up best. See here…

If you really mean what you said- I would suggest you arrange to see a
shrink. Afterall ,it takes one purveyor of garbage to recognise another.

jonathan -- I have added you toy buddy list.
