Regular trailer maintenance is a must if you want to avoid getting stuck on the side of the road with a breakdown.
Launch and boat retrieval in and out of saltwater causes all sorts of damage over time and wheel bearings must be checked and changed regularly.
One of the trickiest parts of changing your wheel bearings is getting the race (or sleeve) back into the hub without damaging it.
For most home handymen like myself without a ton of expensive equipment, this is usually done with a punch – gingerly bashing it in via the very small lip.
Unfortunately you can slip and damage/scratch your brand new bearing sleeve.
In fact it’s virtually impossible not to.
BUT… I’ve got a simple virtually free tool that will make wheel bearing changes a breeze.
And I’ll show you how to make one (and use it) in this video.
