Hmm...there should be 2 of them. But I'm guessing this is the outside one?


I'm sure someone around here has the blowup view to show you where everything goes.

looks like the outer bearing....it goes in before the large round nuts go on. but did you regrease or replace the inner bearing? and did you change the seal? both should be done before even installing the rotor/hub onto the spindle.

Your setup will be close to this, just ignore the two-piece inner seal:

yes...torque the first nut to 50 pounds, back off 45 degrees, install the washer (make sure to line up the little pin, you may have to move the nut to do so.) and torque the outer to 150 pds.

Looks like you didn't repack the bearing and you should repack the inner bearing as well as the spindle bearings. The bearings only fit one way, you CAN"T go wrong.
