Ticking noise at the back

PostPost by: antondeja » Sun Mar 21, 2010 9:52 am

YES !!!

The ticking noise came from the driveshaft ticking to the center pin from the hub connector . Must be the worn out rotoflex that made this happening .

Still having a battle to take the hub of from the passenger side !! ( to replace the bearings )
Made myself a puller by cutting a old hubcap in two and using the wheelspanner as a support plate for the puller .
extra tips please ?

See a picture at http://www.nl.netlog.com/antondeja
There you can also see mi lotus and my work from the past on old cars .



Can a good and nice man put the picture of the puller on this site ? ( i am not a computer specialist )

Thank a million

With every rotation of the back wheel (side passenger) i hear a ticking sound , just like somebody is soft knocking with a hamer on the breakdisk .
I took the rim of and also the complete break system . i jack the car up at the back , start the engine , put it in first gear , let the back wheels spin and there it is . tik tik tik tik !!

Anny Suggestions ?

Sorry for my poor Englisch , but i am from the other side of the world .

Thanks .

You can actually simply use the wheelnut/spinner as a hub pulling tool - loosen off the hubnut so that the top is above the thread on the hub (don't take it off completely), then pack some penny washers together (I taped them to the inside of the spinner so that they would stay put(ish). Then screw the wheelnut back on. The washers press on the hub/drive shaft and nut (which protects the thread) and the wheelnut/spinner pulls the hub off...

A simple but effective bodge that seems to work well - I'm pretty certain I got the idea from here.

My CN bought hub removal tool works like a posh version of your penny washers and nut. A (roughly) 3" diameter steel cylinder with a thread through the middle that you screw onto the axle stub and an alan screw in the outer end of the thread to tension it all up. Put the spinner back on and set about it with a hammer. Usually if the hub's been on more than about 12 months a fair bit of heat is required as well.

It's worked well enough for about 20yrs if you have no mechanical sympathy and don't mind liberal use of a club hammer on your suspension components!
