I have the whole procedure in my Eagle shop manual, but the videos I've seen illustrate much of the Eagle manual very closely.  I've learned some cool tricks from some of the stuff I've watched.  They are helpful.  My reassembly specs are done from here.  This should cover my work pretty well.

I agree with the posts about idiots on youtube. You have to weed those out. However, there are a lot of professionals that post there as well. The one I posted appears to be a Stemco rep teaching a class to Waste Management mechanics. Hopefully, Stemco knows something about replacing seals.......

got the bogies done.  Set the slack adjusters according to the Eagle manual.  I went back with oil.  I figured since it lasted over 100k miles it's pretty good.  I'm going to wait until the soreness subsides before I attack the front axles. :o
Thanks for all your help.

Took the bus out for a hard run of 30 miles and 70-75mph and checked axle hub temps when I returned home.  105 on the fronts and 125 on the bogies where I put the new bearings.  Should I be concerned?

125 psi? That seems unusually high for bus drives unless yout've got a pallet of lead in the rear.

125 degrees.

Those are the hub temperatures at the bearings.

I haven't decided yet.  I have been searching the web for answers.

Why would you ? Rockwell and Spicer, etc. have about 150 years each in design....
PS. that pin that goes thru the brake web, the one the spring hooks to, you knock it out with a punch, and you replace it.

Re: hub temps

Continue to monitor closely.

What weights do they both carry on that bus?

Shoot the drums also, through the hand holds, record and compare.

Snug bearing or dragging shoe are your potentials, but no where big enough temp to do more than continue to watch.

If it stays there, no worries says I.
