I like the fact that you bought it and someone else is taking it and having you build it to there spec’s. And it is going to be used for its intended use. If that was found here in CA the first thing what would of happened was it would of been flipped.

Without starting the great grease debate of ‘22, lol…..what’s your go to grease in the axle pics above? Just curious.
Just red axle grease.Without starting the great grease debate of ‘22, lol…..what’s your go to grease in the axle pics above? Just curious.
Roger that. I use one type also, as long as it’s good for wheel bearing application I’m happy. Whole truck basically gets the same stuff.Just red axle grease.
Keep in mind, unless you have a full time 4x4 like an 80, none of that moves if the hubs are unlocked. If it’s not moving. It’s not wearing.
Wheel bearings. Pack them properly.
If you properly seal the knuckle and pack it full of grease there is no way for water or 90wt to get in there.
I just don’t see the big deal on grease. I certainly don’t use two types as I go.
All California gold parts!Back on it.
Prepping the fuel system and desmog happening now.
I learned my lessons before on fuel. Start with a clean slate. Make sure your lines are clear. Don’t trust old gas.

When you redid the knuckles, did you use a centering gauge for the bearings? And for the tension, a fish scale with the old shims in same pattern as you found them? (Just about to tackle this so want to know how the veterans do it.)
