Fleets whose truck and trailer wheel-end assemblies were submerged under water during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita now have a quick and easy reference guide from Stemco to help them start repairing the damage.

The company's Tech Tip #30, which can be found at www.stemco.com, addresses the inspection, rebuild and reassembly of submerged wheel ends.
