Oil bath bearings

Recommended Posts

BU Crew....I have a boatmate trailer with oil bath bearing. How do you put oil in them. Is this hard process? Should I have the dealer do this? Any help and instructions would be appreciated. Thanks

There's a set screw on the hub. turn it so it faces up, unscrew it, and carefully add 50wt oil all the way to the top, let all the air bubbles come out, replace set screw.

Damn it, Pete beat me to it!

Bah ha ha.

I'm on vacation all week and have nothing better to do than answer questions on the crew.

Oh, wait, I do have some baseboards I gotta get installed. Dammit.

Get rid of that old dial up and maybe you'd beat me. :rofl:

I've heard of people running 80W90. good or bad... comments? I don't have access to the manufacturers oil without a long and painful international shipping fiasco. You would think a 80W90 hypoid gear oil would work well as a rear diffs also run taper roller bearings?

I would use the type and weight of lubricant that the manufacturer suggests.

:plus1: They recommend a specific type and weight of oil for a reason. I'd suggest you go with what is recommended.
