Need info on wheel bearings 72 Toro (Revcon motorhome)

Postby hertfordnc » Fri Dec 06, 2019 3:14 pm

My 72 Revcon is ALL Toro power train right down to the original hubs and rotors. I need to look at the wheel bearings.

How tricky is it to remove them? The GMC motorhome is mostly Toro powered but front end is different and the wheel bearings require a special tool.

Hi Revcon,

I would contact www.appliedgmc.com

Ask for Jim. Although they specialize in the GMC RVs, I'm sure he'd be able to help you. He has been very helpful to me when I contacted him about parts for my '66 Toro (not an RV)

Looks like he has a new web address.

https://www.gmcrvparts.com/aboutus.asp

He has a section on the site with pdf file instructions for all kinds of maintenance and repairs, including front wheel bearings.

He even posted a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nJ3QPNtyCs

I'm not asking about the GMC. That info is readily available.

I'm asking about the Toro becasue that's what's on my motrohome- not GMC hub.

I'm looking for instructions or a video on how to do it.

Right, I know. I'm just suggesting calling Jim at applied GMC because, like the Revcon, the GMC motorhome utilizes the Toronado drive train. He's an expert on the Toro parts and I think he works on Revcon's as well.
