So now question is how old are they and how long since been greased

assess wether they need greasing....then remove freewheeling hub ect to expose the hub nut

bend the lock tab washers up or down ( opposite to where they are now) and remove outer nut and washer..

using a 54mm hub socket tighten bearings to required torque or appropriate feel ( some people prefer the fell method) replace lock washer and nut then bend tabs to lock it to the nut

grab a workshop manual and follow its pretty simple.... or search here for a thread swivel hub rebuild from SteelArt....its a exclent description of the job, and wheel bearings are in that process
