Ummm......... after further poking around I discovered that the front and tag wheel filler plugs have a tiny hole right in the middle of them. (must be to release pressure.) Yikes. That would not be good.


Still.....that's not hard to plug.......

Now is a great time to do a complete brake and bearing service. You can get the wheels sandblasted, inspected and fresh paint; inspect and paint the brake drums; probably a good time to replace the brake springs, check the rollers, s-cams and pivot pins; clean all the accumulated grease and dirt; remove the inspect the drive axles; replace the hub seals; inspect the wheel bearings; take the stripped hubs to a good machine shop for a cold tanking (removes all the paint) and magnafluxing if they pass get them painted or powder coated the color of choice. As has been said before this is probably the only time you'll have to do this job while you own your bus.

Don't forget fixing the studs.....seems the previous owner must have had a Manly Man lug wrench when He put these nuts on cuz they're just stripping.

Cut the nuts off?


I think I'm about to neuter my bus...wait.....isn't my bus a girl?

Chaz, you may want to make sure those nuts your wrenching on with the "manly" wrench are not left hand threaded nuts that you are trying to remove counter clockwise.  I have this vision in my head of whats going on/on your lugs.  I have had some related experiences there....lol.... Shocked Grin
