    Fawked up once again

    By putting in my outer wheel bearing in backwards. The thin part of the race is resting against the snap ring, which allows the bearing to fall out on my 14bolt. FAWK!!! Of course, I discoverd this FIVE SECONDS after I got done putting in the seal. Now I get to smash up my perfectly good brand new seal and punch the other bearing out and remove the snap ring so i can punch the retarded race installed by the retarded owner and reverse it. /rant off!!! :roll:
    Your rig is most likely better than mine

    I'm not sure it's actually in wrong????

    The outer bearing should be able to fall out of the hub until you get the retaining nut on........
