M4 HST wheels on Sherman?


Recommended Posts

Ok, I have been trying to upload en exploded view of the wheel , pin and bearing arrangement but cant so I will have to try and explain.


The bearings are fitted in back to front on a M4 HST, on a normal vehicle ie Jeep Dodge etc the outer bearing ring is fitted into the hub and the tapered inner bearing race is pushed into it.The free play is adjusted by the hub nut pushing the inner bearing race into the outer cone.


On an M4 HST the inner tapered bearings are fitted to the shaft back to back facing outward the shaft is then placed into the wheel.


Then the outer bearing cone is pushed into the wheel and held in place with a locknut The freeplay is adjusted by shims being fitted between the outer cone and the wheel.


Hope that makes sence.
