INSPECTING AND REPAIRING WHEEL HUBS (Fig. 2C-11, 2C-11A and 2C-12)

Clean and inspect all parts, paying particular attention to the wheel hub bearings. If bearings have excessive side play or radial (up and down) play in the wheel hubs, they should be replaced. If ball bearings have been removed from the hubs, carefully examine for visible wear, heat discoloration or damage to inner and outer races. Inspect brake shells for scoring, grooving and worn running surfaces. Check spoke flanges for bent or damaged condition. Recommended hub repair is replacement of worn or damaged parts.
