Hi folks, About to change the rear wheel bearings on my 1988 SEi, I wanted to check for any available information like to-do list, how-to, part numbers, what else to do while I'm at it a.s.o. Or you may tell me that this is all too simple to bother about anyway . Thank you. Jos
Evening All, I've stripped my type 9 box and have bought a replacement kit consisting of the bearings/gaskets/seals from bearingkits.co.uk (http://www.bearingkits.co.uk/FORD-TYPE-9-GEARBOX-REBUILD-KIT/1238.htm) and when I've come to fit the new layshaft bearing it would appear the inner race is still on the shaft. In the kit I have bought, the bearing is complete and the inner race does not split out from the outer. To make matters more confusing, with a bit of research I've found this product (https://transmission-rebuild-kits.co.uk/product/ford-type-9-rear-layshaft-bearing/) which would suggest the two are split. Are these completely different bearings or is there a difference in layshafts dependant on the type of box? Anybody come across this? I was quite pleased with myself for tackling this as a project and was gutted with this slight hurdle, hopefully its an easy one! Cheers Chris
