It was fine once the head came off, was fairly easy to drill out, certainly wasn't high tensile, they may have been replaced before.
Isuzu shop has found me the bearing complete inner and outer for about 70 a side :-)
Going for another trip to the bolt shop to see what I can find.
I will get a picture of the problem soon and post it up... the rear bearing cage was dead, there was 7 bits of it missing and the 8 corresponding rollers were kinda flat.

Have a close look at the stub axle and the hub assembly for damage. I replaced the stub axle on mine as it had worn to the point there was always some play in the bearing

I took the bearing "runs" out of the hub and off the stub axle, they will be replaced
stub axle itself looks good :-)

In the hub the outer rings need to be taped out If they are loose then replace the hub section. On the stub axle the inner ring of the bearing is a snug but firm fit. If its too loose the bearing will always have play which will cause water to get past the seal. Any doubt replace it. Also look at the seal faces on the stub axle. They will need substantial cleaning but any wear on the seal running face is reason to replace the stub axle

Threw it all together last night, All the stub axle seemed pretty good, no wear on it that I could notice, the rings were nice and snug. Used the bearing in a bag method to put the grese thru the bearings. hopefully will find bolts today and can finish putting it back together.

dragging up old thread instead of making a new one for a quick question. Replacing my front rotor's on my 2.8 as they are pretty rusted and on their last legs from being abused with 33's for awhile now. I've taken rotor and inner hub off the stub and I can't seem to split it to get the rotor off the inner hub? its pretty rusted. Tomorrow i'll take it in and use a press to get it off but I wanted to make sure the brake rotor disc is meant to slide off backwards off the inner hub by simply tapping it off?

There is 6 14mm head bolts holding the disk to the hub, have you in done them? Should come off with a small tap of a hammer
