Selling Gen 1 Hub-Bearing Kits

VIDEO: Selling Gen 1 Hub-Bearing Kits

When a Gen 1 hub bearing is worn or damaged, in many cases, the other related components will need to be replaced as well.

You’ll find Generation 1 hub bearings in driven front and rear wheels, and in integral drum designs on the non-driven wheels of smaller cars. 

These cartridge-style wheel bearings can have a tapered or ball design. They’re double-row angular contact bearings, typically with a split inner ring. The split inner ring means each half of the bearing can rotate independently of each other if rotated by hand. 

Typically, these bearings are pre-adjusted, greased and sealed for life.

What Are Direct Ignition Coils?

The stick coil eliminates ignition wires and utilizes wasted space by fitting neatly into the spark plug bore.

Ignition coils transform battery voltage into the higher voltage needed to jump the spark plug gap and efficiently ignite the air-fuel mixture in an engine.

Direct ignition coils are by far the most common type of ignition coil found in modern direct ignition systems, and they’ve been adopted by most of the major automakers. In this design, the coil mounts directly on top of the spark plug, eliminating the need for an ignition wire.
