3. remove bearing cover.
4. remove split pin
5. remove crown nut.
6. PULL .. the hub should come off.
check berings and bearing shells ( shiny things bearings run against) some people think these are part of the hubs but they are not and do come out. with some brute strength and a big hammer ;-)
if they look ok all you need to do is re grease with good marine tailer grease and refit.
checking for play in the bearing when you re fit. you only want a small ammount of play once its all back together.
this can be adjusted by tightening or slackening the crown nut.
dont forget to make sure the split pin is back in.
I think I may have my indespension book that shows a exploede view of a hub/bearings
Thanks for the above, the bearing cover, is it just a case of hitting it and puling at it to get it off. I have metal ones that dont seem to want to shift?
As you say they may just need a re-grease and re-fit which would be ideal, but having never done it before you guide will be handy.
