After noticing the hub seal leak, it was time to sort it today... So I jacked it up and noticed the wheel move in a fair bit....
All bolts undid quite easily to be honest then when the kingpins were remove the hub came away easily to reveal .

Yep the there were NO cylinder rollers in the top race at all, they were all in the hub housing!
I have only had this machine 5 or so months .....that's my excuse ..poor as it is!!

On the plus side I found a split vacuum pipe and sleeved it with a piece of motorcycle battery breather pipe....so it works again.
& we now have new seals and bearings

Best renew the Other side me finks...as a precaution.

Nice feeling when it's all back together, almost enjoyable.

Why thank you for putting us forward for the award of worst kingpins on the forum......all I can say we wouldn't have been able to make this award with out the last keepers use of bathroom sealant around the kingpin housing, but most of all I would like to thank the Jimny itself who soldiered on without complaint and proved the testament to ruggedness that he/ she is!;)

Awesome acceptance speech. There should be an award for that too!
