Front axle and brakes have been completely rebuilt. I ordered new drums as well. I figured since everything else was new I should spend the extra money and finish off with new drums. The only issue I am having now which is common is I cannot get all the air out of the lines. We've tried a vacuum sys...

Re: Axles Portal bearing cross reference

Thank you for the clarification. I was able to find and order all of the bearings. My Guy here in Prescott worked his magic and rebuilt both front portals. The bearings all fit perfectly. THANK YOU AGAIN!

IS TATANKA STILL OPEN?

I have emailed Tatanka several times now. No replies at all. Has anyone had contact with them lately. I have a rather large order I need to place. Thanks for any help.

In the mean time does anyone else have a Volvo Parts source for our rigs? Thanks

Mike

Re: Axles Portal bearing cross reference

Thank you for posting this. My front right portal is getting super hot. I thought the brakes were dragging but after backing off the tension the hub still gets hot. Real hot. Thanks again!
