Question about 1987 Ford F 250

1 Answer

1986 F250 4X4 inner rear wheel seal is not stock

There is an extra piece pressed onto the spindle where the inner seal should wipe on the spindle. I suspect the seal surface got damaged, requiring a repair kit. There is no markings on the seal. The OD of the old seal is stock diameter. But the ID of the seal is about 200 thousandths larger than the stock seal. It is on a 1986 F250 4X4 Supercab HD. With a Ford full floating axle. With a 10.25 ring gear. I have been so far unable to locate a replacement seal. Any sugestions? Other than replacing the axle.

You can carefully remove the old sleeve, careful not to damage the surface underneath, inspect and assess the damage underneath. Possibly it can be repaired properly with medium then fine emery cloth polishing the surface. If there is a groove deep enough that your thumbnail catches on it, you might need to install a new sleeve. Research the brands and install the thinnest one possible. You may also be able to drive the seal in deeper or shallower to locate it in a different position on the spindle. It would only need 1/8 to 3/16" difference. Please post your results, hope this helps.

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.

How to replace rear wheel hub


Sodium based grease is not compatible with lithium based grease. Do not lubricate the wheel bearings without first thoroughly cleaning all old grease from the bearing. Use of incompatible bearing lubricants could result in premature lubricant breakdown.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the wheels.
  3. Remove the brake drum or brake disc.
  4. Remove the hub grease cap.
  5. Remove the cotter pin retainer, adjusting nut and flatwasher from the rear wheel spindle. Discard the cotter pin.
  6. Remove the outer bearing and cone assembly.
  7. Remove the rear hub from rear wheel spindle.
  8. Using Seal Remover (TOOL-1175-AC) or equivalent, remove and discard the oil seal.
  9. Remove the inner bearing cone and roller assembly.
  10. Clean the inner and outer bearing cups with solvent. Inspect the bearing cups for scratches, pits, excessive wear and other damage. If the bearing cups are worn or damaged, remove them using a Bearing Cup Puller (T77F-1102A) or equivalent.
To install:
  1. Throughly clean old grease from the surrounding surfaces. If a new hub assembly is being installed, remove the protective coating using degreaser.
  2. If the inner or outer bearing cups were removed, install replacement cups using Bearing Cup Replacer (T73-1202-A) or equivalent. Seat the cups properly in the hub.
If a bearing packer is not available, work as much grease as possible between the rollers and cages. Grease the cone surfaces.
  1. Using a bearing packer, pack the bearing cone and roller assemblies with a premium bearing grease.
  2. Place inner bearing cone and roller assembly in the inner cup. A light film of grease should be included between the lips of the new grease retainer.
  3. Install the retainer with Hub Seal Replacer (T83T-1175-B) or equivalent. Be sure the retainer is properly seated.
Keep the hub centered on the spindle to prevent damage to the retainer and spindle threads.
  1. Install the hub assembly on the spindle.
  2. Install the outer bearing cone and roller assembly on the spindle.
  3. Install the flat washer and nut. Tighten the nut to 18-23 ft. lbs. (24-31 Nm) while rotating the hub to set the end-play. Back off the nut and retighten to 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  4. Install the new cotter pin.
  5. Install hub grease cap.
  6. Install brake drum or disc.
  7. Install the wheels.
  8. Lower the vehicle.

Need to replace wheel bearing hub kit on 2000 s-10 2wd. is it a kit or just a bearing? What are the steps?


The bearing is "pressed" into the hub/spindle. On the 4x4 model the wheel hub is bolted onto the spindle from the back (remove wheel, caliper and bracket, axle nut, 3 bolts on the back and tap out). On the 2 wd model, It'll have to be pressed out, and back in. Remove the wheel, caliper and bracket. Follow the ABS sensor wire to the inner frame rail in the engine compartment and unplug it (along with removing the bolted clip on the upper "A" frame). Separate the tie rod end, upper and lower ball joints (won't affect the alignment) and remove the spindle. If you can locate a used one you can have it ready to put back in immediately.

How to i remove rotors off of a 1991crown victoria


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.

  4. Remove the grease cap from the hub and remove the cotter pin, nut retainer and adjusting nut.
  5. Grasp the hub/rotor assembly and pull it out far enough to loosen the washer and outer wheel bearing. Push the hub/rotor assembly back onto the spindle and remove the washer and outer wheel bearing.
  6. Remove the hub/rotor assembly from the spindle.
  7. Inspect the rotor for scoring and wear. Replace or machine as necessary. If machining, observe the minimum thickness specification.

  1. If the rotor is being replaced, remove the protective coating from the new rotor with brake cleaner. Pack a new set of bearings with high-temperature wheel bearing grease and install the inner roller bearing in the inner cup. Pack grease lightly between the lips of a new seal and install the seal, using a seal installer.
  2. If the original rotor is being installed, make sure the grease in the hub is clean and adequate, the inner bearing and grease seal are lubricated and in good condition, and the rotor braking surfaces are clean.
  3. Install the hub/rotor assembly on the spindle. Keep the assembly centered on the spindle to prevent damage to the grease seal or spindle threads.
  4. Install the outer wheel bearing, washer and adjusting nut. Adjust the wheel bearings according to the procedure in , then install the nut retainer, cotter pin and grease cap.

Need to replace the front wheel bearings on a 2003 Ford F150


I am assuming it is a two wheel drive unit. Remove the wheel. Remove the caliper assembly from the axle and support it so it soes not just hang from the brake line. Pull the dust cap off from the center of the axle end. Remove the cotter key fron the nut. Remove the nut. Gently pull the rotor assembly from the axle spindle. Remove the seal on the inside of the rotor assembly. Lift the inner bearing out of the race. Use a drift pin to remove the race from the hub. Be careful not to score the inside of the hub where the race mounts. Do the same process for the outer bearing. Replace the race and make sure it is fully seated. Grease the new bearings. Replace the inner wheel seal with a new one. Slide the hub back onto the spindle. Place the flat washer on the spindle with the nut and seat the bearings to about 20 pounds torque and back off about 1/8 turn and snug again and replace the kotter key with a new one,. Replace the dust cap back onto the hub and your done.
