Well that seems (at this stage) to have done the trick!
Just come back from a decent run through Gosford, onto the M1 south to Calga and came back on the old Pacific Hwy back home.
Brakes worked flawlessly and with no noise.
I'm saying - mission accomplished!
So, now I have new hubs all round, new 15" wires and tyres all round, new discs all round and new pads all round. Oh, and new front wheel bearings and a new M.Cylinder.
Now, one other issue I alluded to earlier that many have had problems with. Wheel balance!
Some time ago I posted about this with my old wheels - the inability of most tyre retailers not being able to balance hub mounted wheels.
At the time I solved my balance issue by removing ALL the weights put on by the tyre fitting monkeys and with cheap tyres on 50 year old wire rims - with tubes, the car ran at speed very smoothly.
New wires - tubless - and new tyres - Bridgestone, with no balancing, they run as smooth as silk up to about 140klm's (I wasn't game to go any faster than that).
I was confident that was going to be the outcome and it was. So to reiterate what I've said before:
Wheel balance issues - can't get someone to balance them? Run them naked first and see how you go.
Well, I'm calling this done.
Oh, one more thing to do.
I lost a little oil from the differential during the axle removal and given the differential certainly needs looking at, I want to drain and make sure it's full of new oil. I'll do that soon.
