Question: Should I fill my dust cap full of grease.
Answer: No, the purpose of the grease cap is to catch excess grease from the bearing cavity. Your grease cap should be inserted dry.

Grease is generally in oversupply during the greasing process and will exit the bearing cavity at high speeds and during the initial heating and cooling process. Note: Grease never re-enters the bearing cavity once caught in the grease cap.

What is the purpose of the dust cap?

  • To catch grease?
  • Or to prevent the ingress of dust?
  • To assist bearing inspection. If you see black grease in the dust cap then your bearing is in need of clean and readjustment or replacement.
