Been looking at your problem for awhile trying to figure it out. Count the number of spline teeth and see if they match grooves and count them.

Would say to try BOTH old hubs to see if Both slide on passenger side. May be oddball on passenger side and using both old hubs to test would reveal a difference. If both old hubs fit the passenger side, the answer is the remaining new hub is a bad casting.

Sometimes you get a rust buildup and you need to use Emery cloth to clean the old spline surface just as spindles can sometimes require polishing to accept new bearings. Your new spline parts are crisp and they may be trying to mesh with worn rounded edges.

There may be a problem with the shaft length if any retaining clip or washer were mispositioned and it would show up with the shaft being too short for the hub to slide into place.

Please rate my info.

The gear on the 4 wheel drive actuator and possibly the hub is stripped.
Remove wheel and brakes and take the four 18mm bolts out of the back and remove the cap on the end of the hub and take off a 12 mm nut. It should then come apart so you can see whats going on.

2000 ford f250 front hub dry


The hub should have grease in the taper bearings that go on the stub axle. If the grease was missing and the bearings were dry and rusted then the grease seal in the hub had failed and water was let into the bearings. Replace with new bearings and repack with a water resistant grease. Fit new seal .

How do I get the wheel bearings off of a f250 7.3 1990 4x4 manual hubs?


Jack up the axle and secure it. Remove the rim and tire. Remove the caliper. Remove the manual hub cover (the part that engages the hub) by removing the small Allen head bolts.Remove the big snap ring/"C" ring along the outer edge. Screw 2 of the Allen head locking hub bolts back in and use them to pull the lock out. Next is a large nut that has four indentations in it. There's a special socket 4x4 socket available for around $15 that fits right in there. Remove that nut and the whole rotor and hub will slide off. Because the socket doesn't scar it like tapping it around with a small hammer and blunt chisel.

Broken 4x4


once you have the passenger side/nearside drive shaft out use some thing long to slide in onto the head of the stuck drive shaft. use something soft like a old wooden broom handle then knock out using hammer. ford have used simple spring clips to keep there drive shafts in and thes are easily come by if deformed or squashed

1997 ford f250 steering problem


Check the tie rod, tie rod ends, and ball joints for excessive play. Jack up the front on either side and have a helper push and pull on the top or bottom of the tire. Watch the area where the hub pivots on the axle. if both sides check out. with the truck on the ground, have the helper turn the steeribg wheel back and forth about a half turn with the key off. Look for loose outer tie rod ends, and inner tie rod ends.
F-250 4x4 steering componants are pretty basic, If your unsure what to look for then take it to someone that knows how to fix it. Correctly. If you replaced any of the joints. It would be in your best interest to get it alighned.
