“BENT RETAINER PLATES COULD BE CAUSING YOUR BEARINGS TO LEAK”
Reinforcement axle bearing retainer plates for 55 - 64 Chevy cars. These new reinforcement plates fit over your original plates.
Original plate, were designed for use with narrow tires and wheels not the wider tires and wheels used today. Original plates are thin and tend to bend or distort.
Our reinforcement plates are 1/8” thick Stainless Steel and are precision Laser cut. These split plates are designed so they can be installed without removing your axles.
Simple directions: Pull your brake drums and remove the two front retainer bolts from the axle bearing retainer plate. Install reinforcement plates using the new longer button head grade 8 Allen bolts. Tighten these bolts and do the same with the rear bolts.
4 reinforcement plates, 8 bolts, 8 lock washers. 8 nuts.
