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.
...a well prepped, well driven, vehicle should do well in any terrain, including the highway.

Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.
