    Which way do the outer races go in on a 14b F/F hub bearings (I believe they go in w/ the tapered end out, requiring the bearing to put in at the same time)? Also, is the outer race supposed to seat against the internal snap ring?
    Like a big dummy I tore both hub assemblies apart after digging this rear end out of a junkyard, so I can't compare to the other side /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    I don't remember what direction they face but the outer bearing goes in before the race goes in.

    What about that snap ring?
    Does the outer race seat up against it?

    Yes, the outer race seats against the snapring.
    You drop the bearing in, drive the race in with the tapered end facing out. Then you put the snap ring in and drive the race back against the snap ring. Then you drive the inner race in and stick in the bearing and the seal. Have fun /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
