Emergency! Fellow FTE'r is on the road and needs help

Howdy all,

Krazee Matt is driving down from Washington to Texas where I am and his wheel bearings are to the point where they've all but given out. He really can't go too much further with a trailer in tow without putting his life in danger.

He has the know how, but has a limited amout of tools and needs a hand replacing the wheel bearing assembly on both sides.

He's currently in Prescott, so if you or anybody are nearby or within driving distance and can help, please shoot me a PM for his contact info.

Thanks!

The only member close to him is Bart (Helifixer). He is gone for the next several days. Most of our members are in Phoenix about 100 miles away.
The rest of us are in rural areas a long ways from Prescott.

First of all thank you Razzi for posting for me.

I managed to make it to Prescott and am with some family. Tools are available but limited. I literally just drove out of Phoenix to Prescott a few hours ago and one of the hubs shattered internally - it's cracked in multiple places.

Bought new unit/hub bearings from O'Reilly's and picked up the Warn standard hub kit (11690) as well. The Warn instructions are absolute crap, and searches on here are yielding threads with dead pictures. Also having one hell of a time trying to get the hub bearing bolts loose and removed.

Mounting frustrations, ugh. If anyone has any time to help or whatever I'd greatly appreciate it. My number is 832-298-7316

Forgot all about this thread. Just to close it out, rig's fixed and I finished my trip to Houston without further issues. Both hubs were replaced at a shop that only charged me book-hour labor which was awesome. Threw some Warn hubs on myself, and it turned out that the brakes up front were shot - again. All taken care of now.
