Water Proofing Your Front Hubs.

After having the article written for over a year, and the pictures were taken and lost a couple of times,
I finally made it into a usable web page today.

See if you can use any of this.

Several guys doing brake conversions, this would be a good time to do this while the parts are cleaned up and before the new bearings go in...

Thanx... I no longer do deep water (used to go through at least one set of bearings a year, untill I started packing the hubs and spindles full of grease); it should help those that like swamps and rivers. It is, also, way easier than the methods that I was using.
Enjoy!
