Wheelbarrow Tire Soaks Axle Bearing
David Simpler, Elkton, Md. (davidsimpler@yahoo.com; ph 443 350-1199): “While rebuilding my Brillion Culti-packer, I discovered that an end bearing and its housing were completely frozen. I didn’t want to beat on them with a hammer because they’re made of cast iron, but I knew that just spraying solvent on them wouldn’t help, either. So I decided to soak the axle for a few days. I cut off about 1/4 of an old wheelbarrow tire and clamped it onto the axle, then filled it with diesel fuel to soak the bearing. Worked great.”
