  • How to grease a sealed bearing (Video)

    When the subject of bearings comes up from time to time I always refer to greasing a sealed bearing by pulling the covers off. Here is a good video showing exactly what I am talking about. I even do this before installing a new bearing. You would be surprised on how little grease some brand new bearings have in them.

        I read the comments on YouTube (always dangerous) and do wonder about overpacking and using the correct grease...

          Just don't over pack and make sure you use the right grease.lol
          It would be almost impossible to overpack them, if there is too much grease in the bearing the cover won't snap back into place. Also like any bearing always use and high grade grease. Remember when bearings are made and they install grease at the factory they have no idea of the application that,that bearing will be used for. I would guess the use a general purpose grease.

        I use a marine grease. Is that good stuff?

          Is Marine grease better than regular grease?
          Technically marine grease has additives that make it hydrophobic (repels water). Standard grease is somewhat hydrophobic but not nearly as good as marine grease and standard grease will mix much more readily with water. ... Marine grease is much more resistant to this mixing.
