Question about 1986 Dodge W150

1 Answer

86 dodge w150 4x4

Blew the bearings on the left front, chewed up the spindle, now with a new (used good condition) spindle on the outer axle shaft angles upward checked to make sure shaft wasn't bent, made sure the spindle wasn't warped, but now I can't put the little gear thingy in the hub because the axle doesn't sit straight, A guy I worked with thought maybe the knuckle got knocked out of place, so maybe if I don't find any other possible answers here I'll check that. Thanks

    Bought the truck ('86 W-150) from a junkyard, new motor, new seals, brakes, only thing wrong with steering and linkage was drag link. When going through front hubs, right side was OK and on the left side, the press in bearing was completely obliterated and missing. Like your problem, the axleshaft is now angled upwards. I chucked the spindle up in a lathe via the 6-hole flange and all the surfaces on the outside were straight as can be. Checked the inside diameter with dial indicator and it's >.050 out of round. Wonder if it's defective manufacturing or what????

    Any word on if that works??? Also thought maybe the whole knuckle shifted down (worn ball joints???) Thoughts on this?

How to remove the front left axel shaft on a 1993 buick park ave.


Basically, jack up the vehicle and support it on jack stands, remove the nut on the end of the axle, outer tie rod end and ball joint. Split the tie rod end and ball joint from the spindle assembly. Gently tap the end of the axle to loosen from the wheel bearing assembly. Once loose pull the spindle assembly outward while pushing in on the end of the axle. Once the axle is free from the spindle housing. Will need to apply gentle pressure on each side on the inside CV joint to get the axle to release from the transmission. There is usually a "C" snap clip on the end of the axle in the transmission which may make it a little stubborn to get out. Be sure to not damage the seal where the axle goes into the transmission or you will have a leak

I've changed rotors before but never on a 4 wheel drive. Could you tell me how to on a 1989 ford ranger?


Brake Rotor (Disc) - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Loosen the wheel lug nuts.
  2. Jack up the front of the vehicle and support on jackstands.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire.
  4. Remove the brake caliper assembly as described earlier in this section, but do not disconnect the brake hose.
  5. Suspend the caliper assembly by a piece of wire. Do not allow it to hang by the brake hose.
  6. Follow the procedure given under wheel bearing removal in Suspension and Steering for models with manual and automatic locking hubs (lines down).
New rotor assemblies come protected with an anti-rust coating which should be removed with denatured alcohol or degreaser. New hubs must be packed with EP wheel bearing grease.
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.


Front Wheel Bearings - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  6. Remove the locknut washer from the spindle.
  7. Remove the inner wheel bearing locknut from the spindle using 4 prong spindle nut spanner wrench, T86T-1197-A or equivalent. Make sure the tabs on the tool engage the slots in the locknut.
  8. Remove the outer bearing cone and roller assembly from the hub. Remove the hub and rotor from the spindle.
  9. Using seal removal tool 1175-AC or equivalent remove and discard the grease seal. Remove the inner bearing cone and roller assembly from the hub.
  10. Clean the inner and outer bearing assemblies in solvent. Inspect the bearings and the cones for wear and damage. Replace defective parts, as required.
  11. If the cups are worn or damaged, remove them with front hub remover tool T81P-1104-C and tool T77F-1102-A or equivalent.

When making a turn on 4 wheel drive it makes noise and it wont let me turn the wheel im afraid to force it whats wrong ?


It sounds like one of the outer u joints in the front axle is bad, and needs to be replaced. From experience I've learned that it's a lot easier to change the inner and outer axle shaft with the outer bearing as a complete unit. If you can locate them (Car-part.com), it's just a matter of removing the wheel, caliper, and the 3-15mm bolts that (on the inside of the spindle) hold the hub. Slide the whole thing out, then reverse. Hope that helps. If so please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial. Happy Holidays!

I would like to know if the wheel bearing is in the shaft or the hub?


The Constant Velocity (CV) joints are located on the inner and outer edges of the axle shaft. The axle shaft runs through the hub and bearing in the spindle.

Replacing the right wheel bearing how do u remove that hub do u need a special tool for it


is it a 4x4? the wheel bearing comes with a new hub assembley . Just find out what size the front half shaft nut/ lock nut/axle nut- is. its probably a 33mm thats the only special tool you will need. Unscrew it, take your outer tie rod off the spindle/steering knuckle, theres 3 bolts behind it, take them off then disconect the abs harness and pry out the old hub assembley use a rubber hammer (dead blow hammer) to tap the half shaft out if seized. when installing the new wheel bearing see your manufacturer specs. for torquing the axle nut back on.

Removing the right intermediate axle shaft


i can only guess it is a 3.0l 4v well as far as the axle goes, the rh outer half shaft seperates at the splines on the intermediate shaft.
the intermediate shaft is the solid shaft from the trans to a bearing support bracket and ends after that. it is externally splined.
the rh axleshaft , inner cv joint, is internally splined.
to remove the rh axleshaft, remove the rh wheel and splash shield.
removed the lower balljoint pichbolt and seperate the lower balljoint front the steering knuckle. take the axle nut off and using a large brass drift or hardwood, drive the axle out of the bearing-hub assembly. DO NOT DAMAGE THE THREADS. also use some lubricant on the axle nut dissasembly. after the outer axle end is free, using the same brass drift or other, hit the inner cv joint and drive it off the intermediate shaft. inspect the splines closely because these fail and cause a no-drive condition.
then the mounint bolts for the support bearing and pull the intermedate shaft out, you will loose some fluid.
