wanted for looming mot on the sports coupe

1 x rear drum with its studs and bearings fitted

have wasted two x sets of new bearings in my original drum and there is still play, so its either shocking quality modern bearings or the drum is worn (although it doesn't feel like it :( )

would like a s/hand one, just to bang on and get it tested

anyone?

the first bearing did 50 miles and chewed the race up, but it didn't nip the spacer washer, so was iffy from the start

the second one came from ANG, this did nip the spacer and span nice and free, but there was loads of play in it once the wheel was one.

the whole inner bearing stuck to the stub shaft when I took the hub off again, so I think the bearing space in the drum must be slightly over size.

id rather just swop the whole thing than try another bearing, they are such a pain to do, particularly as the car is outside and it absolutely arsed it down with rain yesterday
