HOORAY, finally got all 4 of them done. Replaced all 4 inner cups, cones, seals, outer cups, cones, cleaned everything and only used 2 tubes of Lucas Red "N" Tacky grease. Hopefully this is the last time I'll have to mess with that dirty job. Lug nuts torqued to 110 lb/ft and hub caps left off for re-torqueing after 50 & 100 miles on the next trip.

Great glad to hear that you are done with the job, Well Alko sent all my bearings (4 sets) and rear seals cost 45.00 bucks. I should have gotten a few studs and lug nuts also to carry for an emergency, my reason so I won't get stuck someplace in the boonies waiting a week or 2 for parts. The parts list shows 1 size of studs for all there wheels no matter if they are 7" hubs or 12" hubs. The part I do not understand is that they call for 1/2"-20x1.8 long Knurl or short Knurl.
1) what is the Knurl ?
2) Parts list shows both
3) do you need to order both or just short or long
As anyone can tell I do not turn wrenches, except in an emergency. But it is good Idea I think to carry these parts and the Road Service could install if needed if I had the parts. So my question is what is meant by the word Knurl? Please educate me on this...Thanks in advance...

To me, a knurl is a cross hatch pattern used for a grip.

Different length knurl would be for different thickness of hub/rotor/drum...

Did you get the cups and cones or just the cones? I think the short knurl would be what you want as the studs are recessed in the hub so the magnets don't hit them.

And valve guides to reduce clearance and allow better oiling of the valves. Old school also. (Plus it's cheaper than new guides. Lol)
