Excuse my ignorance but what is a 4 pin?As long as there isn't pitting in the bearing or looks like it's been burnt/discolored. Otherwise yes you can repack. Going to need a 4pin, I like to use like a dentist pick it's a helpful tool when removing hub assembly to get to bearing
:stupid: I replaced one original (Timkin) at 176,000 miles. I very rarely have to replace any wheel bearing through my shop on the Superdutys. Something must be wrong...ya know as I sit here with 100,000 miles on my timkens one was greased at high milage the other never plus look at my tire size
I recently looked into some sellers on Amazon who were selling "Timkens" but stated Timken uses other MFGs to make their bearings so the bearing may not say Timken ?
I called BS i contacted Timken's fraud dept and sure enough there is no shortage of counterfeit and misrepresented parts
but I can not see how in gods name someone would smoke a Timken bearing every 1.6
years ? unless something was wrong and it can't really be installer error so IDK
