Wheel Bearing type (Torrnado)

Hi
One of my rear wheel bearings is groaning. Does anybody know what type it will be - it's an early Tornado? I'm guessing its a Granada mk 2?
Thanks!

Usually Ford Granada Mk3 as per GTD. Check whether left hand or right hand thread. GTD had different on each side but I think Tornado use both right hand. Get them from Ehay or Burton
The hub nuts need to be tightened to 200 ft.lbs so tighten as tight as possible and replace the wheel, tighten with the wheel on the ground. I use a big 3/4" torque wrench as 200 ft.lbs is tight! Use a new hub nut as they are nyloc type.
Cheers

Hi All,
i have ordered this week bearing kit for my sierra rear wheel hubs on my old kva.....
the sierra uprights or scorpio are 5stud (5X112) and have abs sensor axles
for this combo i found SKF VKBA 918 AND SKF VKBA 919. And one is lefthand tread 22 X 1,5mm (same size as normal tread )
