Axle spindle repair

I used to buy army trucks,and some had so few miles (coupla hundred) that the inner bearing would stick on the spindle and pull out the seal when the hub was removed...............So it seems ,for IH at least,the inner bearing was a tight fit on the spindle...............I d say very few people would have dismantled new trucks ,as its normally not necessary.
 
a car is an insurance write off here for any displacement of the front suspension or frame .....it cannot be re registered for road use anywhere in the country.............i suspect this rule was made by the new car sales lobby.
That is stupid.
 
That is stupid.
An unapproved lift kit or bull bar can have you stopped on the side of the road and it's actively policed.
The good side of statutory vehicle write-offs is it provides a very nice input of modern cars to motorsport, so not all bad.

No it is very bad. A tremendous waste of money, especially for a country that needs to import vehicles. That is money that could be used for other things like education, health care, retirement, etc.

The US and other countries without such stupid laws and infinitely more vehicles, have made such repairs for a hundred years and returned damaged vehicles to the road with no negative consequences.
 
Sounds like the inner race is *already* a slip fit on the spindle. Then why are we talking about building the spindle up so it can be pressed on?
 
Ever seen one of the crappy X1/9 Fiats ?............there was a Fiat X1/9 specialist just around from me .....I must have welded up every part of those cars ,as spares were non existant ...typical Fiat.
My buddy had an X1/9 and his front wheel came off.
The car was just fine, as for the weight of the rear engine.
