LOL, there's enough warnings on this forum about using those gaskets so any member who chooses to ignore them has only themselves to blame WHEN they come loose, the solution is simple.

Everyone with a new Dmax should do their bearings within the first 10000-15000 unless you want to pay for new ones. I have never heard of one sufficiently greased from factory. Grease must be very expensive in Thailand..

Hi DMAX
Did as you said from the beginning as there was no washers or loctite on the original bolts I put the FWH the same. (NO GASKET).
Second time round added the Loctite. Problem solved. Also cleaned and re packed the bearings .I must have been lucky as there was plenty of original grease from new. Thanks Mate

All done $150 new bearings and seals, from noisy to silence.

Hello Duck
How many K's had the wheel bearings travelled? Were they repacked at 40,000km as recommended?
They need to be not loose or tight, and have sufficient grease of course.
If loose they can hammer the rollers and cup and cone until they are damaged. If too tight they run hot even with good lubrication.
Personally, I think Isuzu's tightening procedure makes them just a bit tight.

Early on I had a diff seal replaced in a Oldhen ute, very new vehicle. The diff runs in oil, but the person fitting the seal tightened the pinion shaft nut and the pinion bearings failed in within 50 km even running in 80/90. The one and only Oldhen I will ever own. Too many failures.

Cheers

Hi Dmax, had done 130000k’s, the bearings had apparently been repacked at 43000 service, but after looking at them I have my doubts. I tried cleaning and repacking 1 side but was still noisy, not knowing how much noise is acceptable I took the punt and replaced them. Ow knowing that there is zero noise on. bearings I’m glad I did them should be ready for 2 weeks on Fraser now.
Hopefully good for a bit ! Onto the next Mod.

G'day Duck
Hmm, you are lucky they didn't disintegrate and grab the whole thing together and spin on the stub. I use a magnifying head looky thing to check inside the rollers and turn the cones to see if there is any line or pitting damage. The cup is easy to see but the tapered rollers each need to be turned to view all around each roller. A bit of time involved though.
If they make a noise you can hear it is definitely replacement as they never get better.
Good you caught it before your trip. I presume you will check for bearing looseness after a few KM's. You might have to adjust them during the run. With new bearings they do become slightly loose after they bed their surface in ever so slightly. If adjusted to the point of slight rattle of hub with wheel on the studs, ie, no preload at all, then they will become loose a bit with use. The washer on the outside of the outer bearing wears it's face and loosens the adjustment. If a but tight to start with, when the hub gets hot, road running and braking, the hub get longer and moves the bearings apart more, which tightens the preload and that will Brinell the bearing surfaces and cause short life. A bit of a balance in adjustment. That is why I don't like the Isuzu method of setting them, they MUST get tighter and run hotter as a result. OK in cooler climate or short run stuff I suppose. Good grease amount and quality is essential.
Have fun up there.

OK maybe I’ll check once more before I go Will give it a run up Bribie Island on weekend then recheck.
Thanks for the heads up & yes always enjoy Fraser. Definitely gives the Dmax a good run.

Made up a bracket after much contemplation on where to put the aerial, didn’t want to get a front bar and didn’t want to use a z bracket. Yes there will be transmission loss because of placement but can live with it.
Now the radio

Won't work properly at all there mate. It'll work a bit and seem ok from car to car but over a distance it'll be crap, you'll be lucky to get a few hundred metres with it there in certain directions which is not much help if you're stuck somewhere and calling for help! (been there done that) you need to get it up higher and the more central the better, put it on a foldable base if need be. It's a black art but one rule of thumb is the antenna will only transmit as far as it can sort of "see" if that makes sense and 5k is about as good as it usually gets, however I can get up to 20k in my truck because it's so high on the mirror.
