How to Pack Grease in a Hub with a Broken Zerk Fitting on an EZ Lube Spindle


The grease nipple on the spindle seems to have the part where the grease goes into permanently depressed. I just bought and installed two pair of Kodiak brakes from etrailer and now i cannot fill the integral hub/rotor with grease. Is there a solution?


Expert Reply:

It sounds like the zerk fitting on your spindle has failed as it is not supposed to go into the spindle. You will want to remove the zerk fitting somehow because it could interfere with the possible solution of using bearing protectors, # KREB1980AC, to pack grease in the hub. As long as the zerk fitting is not in the way/removed then the bearing protectors will work out well for you.
