Front Bearings
« on: June 11, 2006, 06:20:28 AM »
 I've got a late 80's vanHool 30 footer.  The front bearings are shot and i'm trying to locate and install some proper ones and determine if the casing is screwed up.  I've got some pictures here,


We are in Santa Rosa California and would appreciate any help or tips,

I've worked on many coaches, but have very limited experince with Van Hoole's. If it were me I'd call ABC Companies since they are the exclusive importer, & service facilty's in the US. They should be able to hook you up, write down the VIN before calling them (they'll need it in order to assure they give you the correct part #'s most of the time they'll even fax a copy of the page in the parts book to make sure you are getting exactly what ya need, also if ya ask they'll usually fax the pages of the service manual covering this repair. I hope this helps, it's the way we do it in our shop when working on one we don't have parts or service manuals on. If possible you should check and see if these manuals are available, there is nothing more valuable then having Da Book when trying to keep on O' these Ol Gals on the road! If ya need anything else we can try to be of assisatance give us a call. 1-731-885-7460
