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

Re: EA wheel bearing adj.

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

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

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