TXBILL: I had an outer wheel bearing fail from lack of lubrication. The outer bearing spun on the spindle and welded itself to the shaft. I couldn't drive the 190D any farther so I had to get a ride home, get my acetylene torch set and some used parts from a junk car. I had to burn the bearing off the shaft and replace the bearings and the cone. I guess I fixed it OK because I never had any more trouble with that wheel bearing and the car lasted a few more years.
After that I made sure the wheel bearings had enough greaze.
