Re: EM 63 axle bearing

Replaced driver side axle bearing assembly (from California Corvairs, a lot cheaper and way better part) and this fixed the noise problem.

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

Got this tip today on the "other" forum. I tried it and sure enough, replicated the sound and was LOUD on the driver side, the one I didn't replace, smooth and quiet on the passenger (replaced) side. Pulled the driver side axle, disassembled as far as I could, not a sign of grease anywhere other tha...

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

I took this "video" this morning of me driving the car a mile down our blacktop, turning around and coming home. Phone was sitting on back seat of my car face down. You can hear the noise I've been trying to describe. Again, it's all the time, braking, clutch pushed in, taken out of gear. Turn up so...

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

The video is of the car sitting on stands in 4th gear, running at idle. The noise doesn't stop when clutch is engaged while driving or on stands, braking also doesn't affect the noise while driving.

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

It's pretty loud, makes me cringe to drive it very far. Was doing this prior to putting the new tires on.

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

Brand new tires. Definitely something rubbing, not really a grinding or thump. No vibration, car runs and drives great.

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

Ok here we go...when driving the car, a 4 spd, I get a noise like a bad spot on a tire and that you hear every rotation...wa...wa...wa..wa..wa. It sounds like to me it's coming from the passenger rear, where I replaced the bearing. Was advised "if it's making noise, it's bad." So, I replaced the pas...

Re: EM 63 axle bearing

Yes there were both on this axle. The dust cover was rusted to the backing plate and had to be pried off.

EM 63 axle bearing

I finally got my axle yoke apart and am able to look at my axle and bearings. It looks pretty shot and there is metal to metal wear on the axle shaft itself.... Looks like a good place for a source of sound and noise that I've been experiencing?
