I've just replaced front wheel bearings on my WB. There was a slight amount of play in the bearings on one wheel and while the bearings looked okay when I pulled them out (no discolouration or scoring, pitting etc) I thought it'd be cheap insurance to just replace them. Even with the new bearings, it has exactly the same amount of play... if I tighten the castellated nut to the next opening for the split pin, it just seems too tight, as in the torque applied on the nut increases a fair bit. I'm familiar with trailer bearings and the amount of play is acceptable but is it on a WB?
Some bloke on here reckons HK's don't rust. I took this pic today (quickly) before it turned to dust..
If you look closely, that rear passenger window (and door frame) has fallen out. This thing was toast. I have more pics of other stuff if anyone's interested..?
friends of mine had a look at this van.....description reads like a bad real estate ad...price is way too high for its condition, with crush damage from being loaded with heavy duty ratchet straps over the top of of it apparently.

I have had all sorts of grief getting my WB's aircon in order over the last year. Bought a reco A6 compressor (the original one had the clutch/pulley missing), new receiver dryer, NOS condensor, replaced the vacuum pods...
Yesterday I noticed that the air isn't blowing that cold anymore (just had a regas a few weeks ago when I had to replace the orifice tube).
One of the high-pressure ac hoses is leaking, just pin hole leaks but it needs to be replaced.
