Hi

I am looking for some advice on packing rear axle bearings with grease. I have cleaned and inspected the bearings and I am now ready to pack them with grease. Do I just press as much grease as I can get in the bearing? I bought a tub of Timken bearing grease from Mac's. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Bill

I try to get as much grease in them as possible. Then once they are in the axle housing I put a zerk in the grease cup hole and pump in more. I usually get some air pops and the grease will ooze out a little. Then cap it and you are ready.

Mike

I just did mine and I was thinking the same thing Bill :-)

Squeeze plenty of it between the rollers. I do it by hand, but some do it in a plastic bag trying to keep the grease off their hands. This video includes greasing the bearing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfxWPsF4KhQ&list=UUFVx528ORtpDgCPJXbFCA6w&index=1 9&feature=plcp

I know I have seen that video before, but it is still a good one. It is so nice that you are not babbling away or playing some kind of music that is annoying.

I also noticed that you were changing outfits between scenes. :-)

Keep up the good work Steve. How is that silver Fordor coming along?

Ah, the Fordor. It's waiting for me to quit playing with house reconstruction, wood splitting, and a busted truck.

I should point out that there's one thing wrong in the video. John Regan corrects it here: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/325351.html?1354398215.
