    "Yeah, it's a double whammy" got a good laugh out of me.

    What do you call a doe with antlers?

    A double whammy!

    Has it only been counting the Power On minutes for a while and staying on 99999hrs ?

    And here I have about 800hrs cutting time on my 10yr old cnc mill and I think the 2.5yr old cnc lathe is approaching 300hrs cutting time.

    Default Long Live the V Plow!

    Thank God for the V plow today!
    I was able to punch through with the V this morning, and no doubt, had I not had a V I would have had spent hours punchin' through 1/2 mile of snow.
    Don't normally get quite this much in one dump. (these days)

    Got the shop cleared out, the house and barn at home, and then went up to the church, then went and cleared out an older fella's drive 2-3 miles on the other side of town. About 4 hours in and my clutch knee is lookin' fer a rest and I'm headin' back towards home. Maybe swing out to a chum's house quick on the way....

    But as I am rolling back into town, I smell heat.

    Trying to decifer exactly what I am smelling ....
    It doesn't smell like brakes, and I don't feel a pull ...
    It doesn't really smell like electrical ... I don't think .... Kind'a, but not ...

    Almost smells like torched rubber.

    So as soon as I can hit a side road in town to git off the hwy, I limped it a block to the big factory parking lot.
    Got heat on the FL tire. Well, not the tire, but down inside somewhere. But it doesn't appear to be the rotor - as it seems to have plenty of ice hanging off of it...

    ???

    Wheel bearing?
    Wheel looked pretty straight tho...

    So I kicked back in the seat for 15 minutes to let it cool a bit and then tried to limp it home. (2 miles)

    I'm starting to git some grinding sounds...

    Taking back streets through town and I had to pop out on another US route again to jog on over, and I wasn't sure if I was gunna make it to the next street! But I made it...
    As I turned onto that street, I could feel that tire lock up and skid as I went around the corner.
    (Lions and tigers and bears!)

    I made it to the other end of the block to somewhere that I could park, got out and looked and that wheel had a fair amount of list to it already.
    I have >1 mile to go down the state road from here, and it's not gunna make it.
    So I dropped my plow and called Mamma for a ride home.

    My trailer is parked in the snowbank with maybe 12,000# on it, and my black truck doesn't have all that good'a tires on it currently.
    That took some .... finesse .... but finally got it out.

    I was concerned whether I was going to be able to drive up the ramps onto the trailer, or if that tire was gunna want to lock up and push on the ramp.

    It drove up like a champ...

    But when I got out, that wheel had a lot more list on it than before.

    I got it home and backed in near the back door of the shop so that it didn't have to move any further than absolutely needed.

    I took a pic and asked the good Lord for a little help git'n this thing in doors - still in one piece.

    Doo you think it made it?

    Yea, you got it inside, slowly.
    Thats a lotta tilt for just a bearing. Ball-joint as well? At that point the caliper is the only thing keeping the wheel under the truck.
    Is this the one the hubs are for? Hopefully that isn't the side you just did!

    Yeah, I made it inside.
    In low / low - crawlin' through the only snow that didn't git plowed earlier since the black truck was parked out that way...


    I cannot believe that it failed that quickly!
    Is that common?

    Different truck.

    I am going to start git'n it apart right away here, and see if by chance that the bearing that I just took off the other truck will fit this?

    99 / 06

    I doubt it, but I didn't order one in yet - in hope that maybe I could toss a used one on it.
    It's just my yard / plow truck.
    It normally doesn't got more/n 5 miles from the shop.
    (but it did this year)

    It didn't fail that quickly. It just didn't warn you! LOL. Grease prolly dried up a long time ago. And, the reason it didn't warn you is exactly what you said:
    "It normally doesn't got more/n 5 miles from the shop." Being cold as frig outside does nothing for localized heat like that dry bearing.
    You put a little time on it today. You gave the heat a fighting chance today. My dad will use a hypodermic needle to pump grease in those damn bearings to keep them alive.
    I'm too damn obstinate! I just refuse to own any!

    I don't know if it will fit? '99 would be a ball-joint Dana-60. '06 will be a 9.25" AAM. Completely different axle. But, whether that is a deal breaker?

    Looks like a unit bearing to me! The wheel bearing goes and it locks up the brakes. Balljoint will wobble like mad, but won't cause the brakes to jamb up.

    Had the exact same thing happen to me TWICE on my 2004 Superduty. Within 15k miles I lost the driver's side twice. The second time it happened it started to grumble getting on the highway and 1/4 mile later I had the same deal as OX. Push it any more and I was going to break stuff to keep moving. They do fail that fast and violent sometimes.

    That inspired me to cut a few apart (like 150 of them) and make my own version of hubs with real bearings (I used Peterbilt wheel bearings). Hopefully get them to market for Dodge, Ford and GM one of these days. Been working through all the little variations between different versions. It's been time consuming to acquire examples of every 8 lug unit bearing front axle made since GM came out with them in 1987.

    Interestingly enough though 8 lug unit bearings used by Dodge, Ford, GM are almost identical.
