Had my front rims sand blasted.  Left bearings in and told guy to tape them off.

 

Well he did not tape them off.  The bearings are all gritty now.  I have no idea why he would not tape them off.  

 

Where would I start looking for front wheel bearings for this?

Thanks

Conrad

I would soak them in some good cleaner and repack them with grease, I suspect that they haven't been damaged yet.
Good Luck with them.

I am soaking them in carb dip overnight .  Hope that will eat the grease out them.  Then I can hopefully shake and air blow most of the sand out.

I guess they are not sealed and are ment to be run with "some" dirt in them.

I'd rinse them out real good after the dip.

They were pretty crunchy after the dip and clean.  I found some at NorthernTool.  Just put new ones in.

 

Thanks

Has anybody heard about the cleaning and repacking of wheel bearings? Wash and clean in parts cleaner/mineral spirits/paint thinner, all the same stuff. Blow out with air, DO NOT SPIN!!!! Wash again, dry again and repack. Whats the mystery?

For 5 bucks a piece I put new ones in.   Online you can get them for 2.50 a piece but I was impatient. 

Here are the new tires/painted rims.   I put 8.50 tires on instead of 6.50.    It raised the nose up a bit and I plan on mounting 25 or 26's on the back next year.
