i have an sbs trailer with avonride hubs and took the hubs off to check out the brakes to ensure they are all nicely free and not all rusty from the extensive dipping they have had the past couple of months.
you can just undo the nut holding the hubs on and the whole wheel and hub comes off in one complete lump with the bearing......fantastic
i noticed the bearings are not sealed for life items ~ good and bad i guess, are held in with a large circlip and have water in them!!!
i was thinking of removing the hubs and stripping the bearings and regreasing/packing with waterproof grease as will be doing a long drive up to pwilly this weekend
however does anyone have a view on if just having some water in the bearing, in the grease can cause probelms, i personally dont think so but wanted to checkwith the experts on here.
means i either repack the bearings before i go to pwilly or when i get back, trouble is before i might not have sufficient time
if i end up repacking the bearings i will take a few pics and post them here so if you have an avonride hub and not ventured to strip it down yet you can see what to expect, whats involved etc.....if that helps
