Changin wheel bearing

I dicovered that I have A LOT of play in my left rear wheel on my 8n. So much that I can wobble it while it's sitting on the ground like normal. I tried and searched for any threads on ho to change it but couldn't find anything. Is this a straight forward job? Thanks

If the big nut is tight (450 ft. lbs., 170 lb. owner on the end of a 3' pipe!) then it's probably a worn out hub, the axles are harder than the hubs. See if the axle splines are sticking out past the hub preventing the nut from pushing against the hub, if so the hub is worn.
