Exclamation Loose Rear Hubs?

Hey Guys,

One possible cause for some of the loose rear hubs may be that the washers behind the axel nuts appear to be deforming when torqued down. There is a machined depression in the hub behind the washer that the washer deforms into. The washers on my revolt were quite deformed. This tends to give incorrect torque readings and may deform more over time thus causing a loose hub. The solution would seem to be using a fat grade eight washer that will not deform. Since there are two holes in the axel for the cotter key this solution worked fine.
Check your washers.....

Scott

Re: Loose Rear Hubs?

We replaced the bearings in the rear hubs with 2009 RZRs rear hub bearing, Polaris part # 3514635. When you push the race out of the Redline bearing housing the Polaris bearing is a one piece direct replacement. We could not find replacement seals for the factory hubs and started looking at the RZR parts and found they fit.
We also used a Williams washer from Fastenal behind the axel nut, this is a much thicker and stronger washer than a grade 8. The Fastenal part # is 1133586. Hope this helps.

Re: Loose Rear Hubs?

The rear hub bearings are also used in the front wheels of some ford escorts.I forget what years. # FW143. Most auto parts stores stock them.

Re: Loose Rear Hubs?

I have the hub bearings in stock too. I only sell top of the line Timken bearings to replace the hub bearings when needed. The Good Stuff!

Re: Loose Rear Hubs?

Timkens are good bearings. I sell industrial bearings but we cant get a good deal on the automotive bearing assemblies

Re: Loose Rear Hubs?

Go out and spend about $2 and get some double thick, grade 8 washers from Ace Hardware. Your problem will be solved.

I had the same issue until I went to an extra thick grade 8 washer.

Redline has actually gone to the same thing now. If you get replacement washers for the hubs, they are extra thick. But I think they charge like $5 each!

Re: Loose Rear Hubs?

Timpken bearings are a far superior product than the Polaris chinese bearing for sure. Does the Timpken come in the 40mm bore x 74mm O.D. x 40mm deep? Next time we need to replace them we will call Red Rock.
The Williams washer is way thicker and stronger than the Grade 8 washer.
