    I was going to go to Bass Tracker.com and come across this forum and thought somebody on this forum can help me as quick as B.T.

    Problem: I have a 2000 Tracker Panfish 16 one of the rubber wheel bearing covers has a crack in it, and slings grease. I am wanting to replace both grease covers but not sure where i need to go to get a pair of new ones.

    If this forum is like some i have been on i know there is somebody on this forum who care steer me in the right direction.

    I have just registered and am a new member to the forum, any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    HI JIm, welcome from Missouri. I run buddie bearing covers from wal-mart. They are spring loaded with a grease zert and help keep water pushed out of the hub. They ain't very expensive and work really well.Easy to install too.

    Welcome to the BOC and I see you already got a suggestion, and I guarantee you there will be more to help if they can.

    While i would like to have the type of grease covers i have on my trailer now, i have thought about the kind you are using, but never could determine what size i needed.

    Jim Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. You can find the original seal/boot at The Old Bait House in Paducah, Ky. Are you can buy a wheel bearing cover called a "Bra'. This fits over the outside hubs. Cheap.

    Thank you for the information i will give them a try and see if they can help, i have a feeling i will have to eventually have to go to a different type wheel bearing cover.
