CF Bedford Chat / wheel camber woes
« on: October 22, 2014, 08:09:48 AM »
mornin all.. a while back i got a set of front springs out of a lwb beddie an put them in "ol futile" lifted the front end a beaut.. but have now noticed both outer front tyre treads are worn on the side  :'(  so assume i have changed the camber of the front wheels  ???  ??? ( i believe there is no adjustment on front end for it ). i know my old springs were 11 inches high, but are down south so cant slip em back in... anyone know what the camber should be (if any).. at a look it appears the wheels are not square ( top to bottom ) but tilted slightly outwards at the top of the wheels   can i cut these springs down to reatain the camber if they are higher than 11 inches... or am i stuffed ..thanks for any input in advance groovers   ;)

CF Bedford Chat / rear bearings
« on: December 13, 2013, 12:47:54 PM »
hi all... was heeading off to darwin last week.... after gettin beddy ready... noticed on wed rear wheel on diff driver side was leaking...sigh. so pulled it out ...cracked bearing   double sigh....  went to cbc who sold me a bearing at 187.00 triple sigh...   only to find it has been machined wrong by the chinese ..... the o ring seal is on the same side as the inner  race step out... it may be an update to the bearing  they said.... yeah right i say... that puts the seal less than 2 mil from the end of housing ... finally they agree it is a manufacture fault... .. an they said othey only had six in country all the same prob, were gonna get someone to grind new slot  for seal but have to wait 2 weeks at least ...gotta get headin north i said .. so they are tryin to get a genuine one (at more costto me i might add)... but still not till next week some time... so a desperate long shot and appealing to your collective good natures... does by perchance any one in or near adelaide have a spare rear wheel bearing that i could have an i will replace with the one coming from cbc?????? this my last option as the chances of finding one at wreckers is soooo slim plus dont really wanna use a second hand one if travellin 3000 plus kms.... dont reqally expect any luck on this... but poor ol skip has lost his bounce... an really stuck with this at mo.... cheers anyway guys for listenin... skippy  :'(
