Excessively thick spacers need for rear hub carrier adjustment.

Since I was unable to find the factory tool I used spare spacers to achieve the same result at .255" minus the float.
Measured float at .098" and .052".
.251" - .098" = .153"
.251" - .052" = .199"

Both exceed the available shims, so indicate that my new bearing races are not fully seated.
But I am sure that they are, so now suspect the new bearings.
Need this car back together in the next couple of days!
Going to repeat my measurements again, but I've already done them twice.
Trying to think my way out of this, looking like shim stock may be needed?

Suggestions welcome.


At these prices I want my gas 100 octane, leaded, and my windshield washed!

Re: Excessively thick spacers need for rear hub carrier adjustment.

OK, finally got it.
Seems the bearings were not moving on the hub.
Still had to add .014" to my thickest spacer on one side, via shims I made.
Cannot wait several days and pay $20.00 - $30.00+ each for the "Correct" parts.
For this project Correct is what works.
