Hi

Need to replace my rear wheel bearing and seal on my 1964 Conv., does anyone know if its a big project and what I will need before I pull the shaft out? I also need to know the parts number and where to get a good bearing and seal.

Thanks

Dominic

Dominic,

It's not that big a job. You will need a slide hammer to remove the bearing/axle shaft. You can borrow or rent one from an auto parts store. I can't recall offhand if you need to remove the brake components from the backing plate or not. The old bearing will have to be removed by a machine shop with a press, same for installing the new one.

Thanks Ian

Super easy job so do it yourself without wasting $$$ on some shop!

if one of them went bad then I’d highly suggest you to both sides! This way you can replace gaskets and the oil as well. Just slide out both axels and take it toNapa or other shop to have bearing replaced.

i would recommend you the SKF bearings.

Do I need bearing and gaskets, where do the gaskets go or is it for the rear end cover gasket. I'm going to have my mechanic do it but I want to get him all the parts as these parts are not always standard.

My 1964 Cadillac electrical system is running around 17 volt which is to high,the alternator, battery and the voltage regulator was replaced but the voltage is still to high, could it be the pig tail that plugs into the voltage regulator.
