    Yeah. My main concern was getting the bearing too hot after install. So after I dropped the bearing in I cooled the hub with water immediately.

    Hub was in the gas braai. Bearing in the freezer.

    Which is perfect. For really close fits I know they use something like liquid nitrogen to freeze components, then they do a controlled warm up as to not damage the material which was cooled.

    You have 2 choices, heat or cool. The freezer bit Marius used is a bit of a red herring. I prefer liquid Nitrogen, because I don't trust the average worker to heat the part. I've caught too many firing up the oxy gun.

    Plan the fit, call Afrox, drop it in, wait for the pinging to stop, fit. Easy

    What's liquid nitrogen gonna do to the bearing grease and that rubber seal - mine was a sealed bearing.

    Don't think they use it on pre greased sealed bearings.
    But it is also not used for general fitting, that's what hammers are for hahaha

    Marius, was commenting more in general than for your particular sealed bearing. It would be a big call to drop that bearing into liquid nitrogen. I actually don't think it would do anything, and if wasn't my bearing I'd give it a go. Would be real fun! In reality you could drop it in a cooler box of dry ice, you could probably have fitted in the car?

    My comment regarding the freezer is due to a freezer not actually being cold enough. What temp is your freezer? Say -15? What's ambient? Say 25? So you got 40deg by freezing it. What did you get by putting the other half in the oven, say 200? What did you need?

    Bearings are light interference fits. Which race should have the interference fit? The inner or the outer?

    Caught a small slow drift earlier today on the super slippery road home after all the rain we've had.

    If the ESP was off and unintentional, you would probably have had a new paintjob or doringdraad bullbar.

    ESP was off. I intentionally looked for the drift.

    It's unbelievable how the treg usually does not want to step out. The road had to be super slippery and be manhandled for it to do this small drift.
