So last weekend decided to check if the slight Patrol Wobble I was developing could be from the front wheel bearings, and indeed, left front had play. I had to also jippo a tool together in the garage and after a second attempt at it, came up with a working model. I tightening it up to take the amount of play away and so far no more wobble. Will be testing it on the weekend on a longer drive to make sure the bearing and hub aren't getting hot due to over-tightening. Question one is, would tightening it back up be sufficient for now, or should I pull the bearings and put new ones in? Grease looked clean and no evidence of water or gunk.
As far as the tool goes, it looks terrible as I did the welding myself
, but it works 100% with a torque / socket wrench. Anyone on the East Rand who needs to use it, give me a shout.
