What do I need to know about Bearing Marine Seals?

  • Marine seals are a tight fit on the axle journal.
  • Some installers smear silicone on this journal to keep the rubber seal in the correct place.
  • Marine seals rotate inside the stainless metal retaining ring.
  • Friction can create heat up to 100 degrees C.
  • You must liberally grease this seal around the outside ring of a marine seal. Insert the seal onto the axle, not into the hub.
  • A dry or greaseless marine seal causes excess heat.
