Having problems with your 1992 Toyota Tercel ?

I just put in new rear wheel bearings and oil seal and I ended up with no play at all in the wheel. The racers are as deep as they could get and the oil seal is leveled with the the back of the hub. Or should the oil seal be deeper in right down to/ touching the bearing? I tightened the lock nut real hard then backed it up until I could turn it by end. Then barely tightened the lock nut again. The bearings seemed to be sitting pretty well,and there's not friction with the brake pad, yet there's

Answers :

If all was installed correctly, I always spin wheel slightly while tightening the nut. You don't need to reef it right up as tight as you can get it, just good and snug with a little pressure, then back it off to the first notch that the cotter pin will align at. Naturally you don't want that to be too far back either, but normally the next notch for alignment is no more than 1/4" backed off. Obviously you want minimal play, but too tight will burn it out prematurely. Are you sure it's not the brakes holding?

You should not have any play once the bearing is slightly tightened, just enough to secure it and insert the cotter pin. Once you install all the components, you tighten the nut down snug, loosen it up, the tighten down snug again, then back off slightly to the nearest cotter pin hole. Spin the wheel hard and it should turn approx. 2 revolutions and come to a gradual stop.
