F 100 Brakes for Early Fords      by Jim Clark

F-100 Brakes-4

At top are the F-100 seal, inner bearing and cup.  Below are the new seal, inner bearing and same F-100 cup.

The Ford spindle has a rounded radius where the bearing seats so the inner edge of the bearing needs to be ground with a die grinder to match the radius on the spindle or the bearing will not seat fully.

  The high angle photo of the spindle shows the gap between the bearing and spindle mating surface.  The bearing should be wrapped with tape to keep out contamination while the desired radius is created inside the edge of the inner bearing with a die grinder.
