I hate to date myself but I learned to pack wheel bearing about 1966
. I have 3 English sports cars 1976,1958,1957, and a tandem boat trailer, I am a wheel bearing packing fool, or a fool packing wheel bearing. I have a good friend from high school who kept burning out wheel bearings on his 59 Chevy. He tells me one day " I found the problem, I forgot to pack the wheel bearings when I replaced them." We both had taken auto mechanics our senior year to fill out our schedule so it was one of those wtf moments.
