    Default Crack in wheel hub

    My Duck has a 16mm crack from one bolt hole and a 5 from the other

    I suppose this a standard sort of thing

    I thought ducks went quack...
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    Surely not serious with your intention?

    Hi Renburg
    I am no expert here but I would replace that hub ASAP.
    Whatever the nickname of the car, loosing a wheel is a disaster by any name !! Check the others also.

    I think you need to revise your toe-in technique. The idea is to LOOSEN of the track rod adjusters and THEN move the wheel.

    Just moving the wheel only without slackening off the adjusters is liable to result in cracks appearing on the wheel hub.

    Ducks are meant to waddle so one needs to have the required toe-in. Kiwis on the other hand walk splay footed. Didn't you say your duck came from NZ? Some maori probably mistook it for a kiwi and just bent the wheel to adjust. When the Warriors next come over to play, ask them to bend it back. Should do the trick.
