3,,we then wipe all the excess grease from both sides of the bearing with our finger tip,,,this leaves the bearing fully packed around the bearings and their cage

4,,we re-install the seals

FYI #2 = if ya pack em so full that the grease oozes out from the seal,,it will continue to ooze out once the bearing warms up and the grease expands,,,that's counter-productive to have grease oozing all ove ryour wheels and possibly the brake disc....

remember 90% of the bearings assume they will be running at higher RPMs your wheel will hardly see 1,000RPM,,,hence they pack them with minimal amounts....and definitely NOT water-proof grease

Thanks! I was hoping to find your post to get the accurate information/ best thing

I was shocked at the lack of grease in the SKF "sealed" bearings. The seals were easy to pop out and replace without damage.

Thank you again for your help and input here!!
