Question: Should I fill my grease 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.
Will grease exit the bearing cavity at high speeds and during the initial heating and then re-enter the cavity during the cooling process?
Grease never re-enters the bearing cavity one caught in the grease cap.
What is the purpose of the grease cap?
- To catch grease?
- Or to prevent the ingress of dust?
