EA wheel bearing adj.

Anyone have thoughts on adjusting EA wheel bearings,? or does the usual "tighten till the wheel stops turning and back off 1/4 turn" still apply?

Thanks
Regards Prof. Rabbit

Tighten them firm while turning then back off alittle....Too loose and you'll have brake vibration etc....

12g fencing wire makes the best split pins, (16g for smaller pins)
