They were just slightly to large for my hub. Perhaps my hub is slightly off or the pair I got was machined to large. Not sure. Anyhow they are extremely thick and will not give at all like a normal bearing cap. If they will not go on after a few strikes with the hammer they will never go on.After spending about an hour trying to drive these onto my 1.98 hubs I gave up and grabbed a pair of Bearing Buddy's. They fit just right. [...]

                I was missing just one cap, but nobody sells only the caps. Every place sell the bearing kits with the caps.
                First time I checked they were not in stock, but the salesman said that they should be in the following week. Stopped by the next week and the caps were in.

                      Comments about Fulton Bearing Life Bearing Protectors:

                      Like two others on this site, the 1.98 Fulton bearing protectors won't fit on my 1.98 hubs. I tried several times with both protectors on both hubs to make them work. No matter what combination of protector to hub I tried, they just wouldn't work. The protectors won't give any to fit into the hub. I got to the point that I was afraid of damaging my hubs to make them fit. I will take them back to West Marine and buy another brand.
