Question about Fulton WB750 Wheel Bearing Kits
If you are running tapered bearings then I would say that your problem is over-tightening and will destroy bearings very quickly. Too much or not enough grease will do the same . To properly grease new bearings you have to get the grease between the rollers and under the cage (that steel bit that holds the bearings apart) To do this place a small amount of grease in the palm of your hand and use the open end of the bearing to create a scraping action through the grease . This catches the grease and pushes it between the rollers. Do this action until you see it coming out the small end of the bearing. This is all the grease you need for a properly lubricated bearing. Repeat the process for the other bearing. Reassemble and fit the washer and locknut. Tighten the nut at the same time turning the wheel. When the nut is firm against the bearing but not tight turn the wheel a few more times. Now don't touch the wheel but loosen off the nut then retighten it up until it just touches the bearing. This is a no pre-load no end float situation that is most desirable for tapered roller bearings. Fit the split pin in the hole and open up the pin to catch it in the hole. If the pin hole will not allow this to happen tighten it just enough to get the first available slot to line up to allow the pin in. If you have thrust ball bearings they same method of greasing and adjustment is applicable.
