[xj] Re: Rear Hub Water Thrower

Hi Dirk -

Could you give me a reference to this part? The p/o of our newly acquired '85 xj6 had been working in the rear hub area, so I’d
like to check it out. I didn’t find a reference to it on the cd IPB. Many thanks.

Subject: [xj] Rear Hub Water Thrower

Dear All,

Has anyone ever installed a water thrower on a rear
hub? I don’t have the new part in front of me yet, so
I thought I’d get some advice ahead of time.

I can’t tell much by looking at the other hub
installed on the car, but apparently it’s just pressed
into a groove. I hope it’s not supposed to be
captured by the seal race; that would be inconvenient
since I’m not sure how to remove the race without
damage to it.

BTW, if you live in a temperate or wet climate,
particulary one prone to snow or ice, you might find
your rear wheel bearing failing every 35,000 miles if
the water thrower was left off by a PO. I have more
than two data points for this now. Probably should
have replaced the water thrower the first time around.

Thanks and Regards,

Dirk Roorda

Bob,

I can’t locate the p/n right now; I’ll check on the
receipt when I get home. The new part came from
JagBits.com (with whom I have no affiliation), so they
could tell you the p/n, too. It cost $8.00 plus
shipping.

I did manage to install it by more or less mashing it
securely into its slot with a chisel. I think it
could be done more neatly with the proper size round
pipe, maybe with a tapered end, using a press or a
vise. The trick would be to expand its retaining
flange by pressure, and then it would perhaps spring
back into shape inside the retaining groove when the
pressure was released.

All that the green manual says is to “stake it down in
two or three places with a blunt cold chisel”.

Regards,

Thanks, Dirk, for the info. It’s obviously something to look at if ever I have to get into the rear hub area.
And, knowing where to find a new one is very helpful. Again, thanks.

Btw, I found a reference to it in Haynes, which said it was secured with three fasteners. When I tried to locate the part by
looking into the hub carrier, I found it hidden by the outer u-joint cover, which I didn’t feel like removing.

G’day Gang,

According to my CD parts book it is P/N C.20813 listed on page 1F06L and
from memory, when I had my rear end out, it was staked on, there were no
separate fasteners.

Jeff Watson.

Thanks for the reference. It helps to know where to look (the
outside of the hub carrier). I’m wondering if I can see this
thing with the wheel off? I’ll find out this pm. Thanks again.

G’day Bob,

If you take the rear wheel off you should be able to see it between the
alloy hub and the mounting flange for the wheel… It’sjust a thin metal
plate.
