URGENT HELP NEED TO BORROW WHEEL BEARING PRELOAD TOOL

Post by NMAD » 11 Aug 2015 21:04

Hi all

I have just put in new bearings and races on the front axle and I need to borrow someones wheel bearing nut torque tool urgently please.

I stay in Table view Cape Town and would like to drive out to whomever may have one in the area and then torque them at your place.

They are currently only set finger tight so need to pre load them. I have a torque wrench which I will bring with.

Please help.

Thanks

Noel

Noel you are welcome to use mine as well, I'm in Jacobsbaai, close to Saldanha, but it might be a bit too far! I could always send it to you as well.
