Hi all.
The rain has let up on the Gold Coast which has given me a chance to finaly repack (or maybe replace) the front wheel bearings on the GQ. I have done a quick search through the archives but i cant find what size socket i need to do the bearing nut and locknut. I think it is 54mm can someone let me know as i need to buy one in the morning.

Thanks heaps

Steve

Hi Steve

While you are at it, you can wash your truck, the Water Commission
has lifted the ban on hoseing, until the Hinze Dam stops over flowing,
no restrictions for a few weeks, on the Gold Coast.

Steve,

I found buying one to be a very expensive option, and it wass not all that easy to find a shop that had one.

I made one out of a piece of flat bar, I think it was about 5 x 45mm

I took the nut off and clamped the nut inf a vice with the flat bar and simply bent the bar around the nut. I welded the joint, welded a piece of the flat bar across the end and welded a large nut, mine was 19mm, but whatever you have would do the job. Just make you sure you have a socket to fit the nut you use.

Have been using it for years and it is still going strong. It was a lot cheaper than the shop bought alternative, I had all the stuff lying around the shed, and I get great saticfaction out of lending to the mates from time to time.
