I just finished putting on the new seal. I'm wondering what caused the seal to fail because my bearings seem ok. Time will tell and I'm riding sunday...heres hopin...
Thanks for the help!!
I'm thinking that maybe when the bearing has enough wear and I am loaded heavy the wheel sits more crooked and oil mayhave an easeir time getting past the lip of the seal when the wheel is cocked. Mine dripped the day I carried a heavy load up a bumpy mountain road.
