I bought a habor frt. trailer with cargo top.Habor Frt. states not to run over 55 mph.will I have trouble with the hubs getting hot.First time pulling trailer.
Should i change the wheel bearing grease to high tempI keep the bearings grease up and run 70 to 80 all day long.
Last year I pulled one trailer with 12" tires to Oregon, down tha California coast and back without issue. That trailer weight was 600 pounds and did on average 700 miles a day. Just keep those bearings clean and greased!!!
I agree with that, I do the same thing. The moment I don't carry a set, I'll need them!I would buy two extra wheel bearings for what they cost ($8.00 to $10.00) and have that insurance on me at all times. Pack them with grease and wrap them in wax paper in a box and store them in your trailer for the "JUST IN CASE" moment..
I have two new ones in my bushtec trailer right now.. just in case...
Check the wheel bearing grease before you pull it. I bought one of the HF Tagalong trailers a couple years ago and somebody on this forum told me to check it. When I pulled the bearings they were almost dry, and the grease in them looked like Vaseline. I packed them with high speed bearing grease and pulled it several thousand miles before somebody rear ended me and that was the end of a good $300 trailer.Should i change the wheel bearing grease to high temp
Figure a submariner would recommend Mobil-1 :lol:. For info for others, Mobil-1, also known as Mobil-1 Red is the grease used on the ship's motor-generator sets. It's a great grease. Doesn't mean the other greases won't work, just that Mobil-1 is good.If you have NOT removed the 'grease' that the bearings were packed in, do it NOW! When I built my HF Tag-Along, I pulled the bearings and cleaned/repacked with Mobil1 grease. That Chinese crap in there looks kinda like Vaseline....
do both sides, you do not have to take out the race from the hub if you are not replacing them.Did not take out inner bearing yet.should I take out the inner bearing to clean it
