Well it seems that between Jessie burning rubber and the age of the rear axle it has come to the end of its usable life. We tries replacing the bearing, and it still leaked, so we added a spacer cup to fill it the over sizing. That worked for a week or so but now there is a horrible rumbling sound coming from the rear end... Jessie assures me that it sill not cause me any problems beyond the annoying sound. But we do need to replace it with a larger one. So we are now looking for a 8 or 9in rear axle that would fit, the current original one is a 6in.
There are plenty of axles available for between $100-200 but non that are close by so far!
