Applications of Pre-Packaged Wheel Bearing Assemblies 810758
This paper presents a general discussion of bearing applications for non-driving wheels and independently sprung driving wheels. It stresses the advantages of a prepackaged bearing assembly. The pre-packaged bearing assembly is a complete package including a housing with means of attaching it to the vehicle and a hub for mounting the wheel, with the bearings permanently greased, sealed, and properly adjusted.
The hub may be splined for the driving wheel application or not splined for the non-driving wheel application.
