Well I got all my new seals for my 49 8n and upon reassembly I cant seem to get the clunk out of the axle.I removed shims I added shims with no change,so I think the bearings are bad. I tightend the hub nut as tight as I could useing a 5' pipe on the breaker bar to make sure it was tight enough. Just don't know what else it could be

The hub may be worn so much that no matter how tight the nut is, you still have slop. I had to replace the hubs to get the 'clunk' out of my '49. You may be able to see if the nut bottoms out on the axle threads, you won't be able to tighten enough. My 2. Steve 8N 169302

The large nut on the end keeps the wheel hub from wobbling but has nothing to do with the axle end play, the shims at the 6 brake plate to axle housing studs take care of the axle bearing adjustment.

Right you are, but a worn hub 'clunk' may be mistaken for a bearing load 'clunk'. BTDT. Steve 8N 169302

Did you happen to look at your pinion and ring gear to see if there were any teeth chipped or missing? How about the 4 spider gears in the middle of the ring gear carrier?

Just a thought.

Yes, that is the next step along with cups.
