51 Farmall M Front Wheel Bearings

Postby Plywud » Thu Feb 25, 2021 10:26 pm

The front end is shaking a little today on the run around the neighborhood, so I pulled the one side that was more loose than the other, outside bearing was somewhat rusty and the nut was loose, and the inside one came apart in my hand. I found the outer bearing at the local auto parts store, but had to go to a specialiety bearing outfit for the inside. Neither had the oil seal. Also did not find the dust shield or felt washer. Only the outside grease retainer was installed as shown in the parts book. Haven't taken the other side off yet. The grease retainers look like big washers, the dust shield, felt washer and oil shield. Any ideas where I can get them? Steiner shows some oil shields but none that look like the replacements for the M tri-cycle front end.
