Bearing Buddy Operation

Replace your existing grease cap with a Bearing Buddy to ensure a safe, easy way to monitor and control the level of grease in your axle hub. To adjust the amount of grease in the hub, use a grease gun to add more through the appropriate fitting. Adding grease moves the Bearing Buddy spring-loaded piston outward 1/8".

The O-ring inside the barrel of the Bearing Buddy maintains a seal from the outside. The interior of the Bearing Buddy is pressurized, preventing water from entering the barrel and diluting the grease.

An automatic pressure-relief feature is built into the Bearing Buddy. When the device is full, grease will seep around the edges of the piston and into the barrel. This prevents overfilling that can damage the inner seal.

You can manually check the grease level in your Bearing Buddy by pressing on the edge of the piston. If you can rock or move the piston, the hub is properly filled.

Your product arrived on time and undamaged. It installed exactly as described in the literature. I am very pleased with my new Bearing Buddy's. As a side note I noticed a small amount of chrome machining debris inside the hub of the housings. It was easily cleaned out with a rag before installation. These Bearing Buddy's are installed on a 32 year old utility trailer I am refurbishing. Although the trailer is small (4 x 8) it has a 5000# axle and has seen some pretty tough use. Ive attached a pic of the trailer undergoing refurbishment along with a couple of pics of the installed Bearing Buddy's. Excellent product and service! 107659

These are a must have! If you ever burnt axil bearings and had to make repairs along side an Interstate with 70mph traffic whizzing by, you be wishing you had greased them! Only buddy bearing brand is the one to buy!60594

  • How to Order The Correct Bearing Buddy Size For A 1998 Homemade Trailer
  • If you will remove the wheel on your trailer and pull your wheel bearings and get the outer wheel bearing part number that would help you with which Bearing Buddy to use. The reason you have to go to such lengths to find out what Bearing Buddy Kit you need is that there are so many different variations in bearing/spindle/seal combinations that the only way to be sure you have the right part is to check the equipment you have. The Bearing Buddy pages also have listings on them for what bear

  • Bearing Buddies for a 6,000 Pound Dexter Axle with 8 Lug Hub
  • Check the outer bearing and race numbers stamped into the metal of the bearing and race in the hub. Most 6,000 pound 8 lug wheels we carry use outer bearing # 14125A if it is an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. If it is an 8 on 8 bolt pattern, it may use # 506849 outer bearing. If you have the 14125A outer bearing, you can use Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors, # BB2717SS, or # BB2717.

  • Bearing Buddies Recommendation for a Dexter P-11 6 hole axle 6K Axle
  • In order to determine which bearing buddies you need, you are going to need to remove the hubs of your trailer and get the number off of the outer bearings. Most 6K axles have outer bearing numbers of LM-67048, 15123, LM-67010 or 15245 which all will work with the Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors # BB2441 that you referenced.

  • How to Remove Bearing Buddy Trailer Bearing Protectors
  • Bearing Buddies like # BB2441 fit very tight into a trailer hub. In order to get them out, you will need to use a rubber mallet and persuade them out. Once the Bearing Buddy starts to unseat from the hub you can grab it and wiggle it out.

  • Replacing Zerk Fitting on # BB2441 Bearing Buddy
  • The zerk fitting is a standard size. The fitting is threaded, and is secured by a nut located on the inside of the bearing buddy. You should be able to obtain a replacement zerk fitting from your local auto parts store.

  • Do Trailer Hub Bearing Buddies Also Work with Inner Bearings
  • A Bearing Buddy allows you to pump grease into the center of the hub all the way back to the grease seal. A double lip seal should be used to prevent grease from blowing out the seal when added. You can pre-pack the bearings if you wanted to but that would negate the function of the Bearing Buddy. The outer bearing is mentioned because that is how the hub bore size is determined.

  • Determining Size of Bearing Protector Needed for 2001 Load Rite Trailer
  • The best way to determine the size of bearing buddy needed would be to take a highly accurate measurement of your hub bore using a digital caliper. I have edited a photo for you that shows this dimension. If you happened to know the reference number from your outer wheel bearings, the proper bearing protector could be determined. If you would care to reply with either the hub bore dimension or the outer bearing number, I would be happy to suggest a bearing protector for you.
