How to Know When to Stop Adding Grease to Dexter E-Z Lube Axles  


Hi, i have dexter EZ lube 6K lb axles that I just put on your brake kits, seals, etc. Since this has the grease fitting in the end of the axle the hubs were filled with grease, cleaned out etc. My question is when using these fittings, how do you know when to stop? I have used similar on axles and can see grease come out the seals when the trailer does not have brakes... will I be able to see grease come through the front bearing through the cap hole? I hate to have grease get into the new brake components .... thanks, I didnt see this mentioned in any of your articles or answers....


Expert Reply:

When adding grease like the # L11390 you want to pump the grease slowly and rotate the hub. You will continue to pump the grease until you begin to see grease come out of the front. If you're replacing old grease, you will continue to pump until the new clean grease is observed.
