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.

Put bearing buddies on my boat trailer last year greased them up and basically you never have to worry about your wheel bearings. Checked them in the spring this year put 1 shot of grease in each side and trailer's good to go fishing for the season.

I have packed my wheel bearings on my trailer for the last time. Ordered a set of Bearing Buddies from etrailer.com and it took maybe 10 minutes to install them. Very high quality and will probably outlast my trailer. If you own a trailer and do not have Bearing Buddies on it.....Why not?


Comments
After a year the bearing buddies are working just as good as the day that I installed them. What used to be a half day job packing the wheel bearings are a half minute job.

I know the Bearing Buddy works great and just needed a replacement. etrailer has an easy to navigate site and more trailer parts than one could imagine. Their prices are great too!The customer service received at etrailer.com was STUPENDOUS! I ordered the two new Buddies and within 10 minutes George J. with erailer emailed me and said the parts were in stock and would ship. An hour later I received another e-mail. This one was from Nancy W. She said the order was complete and had shipped. The e-mail provided a tracking number too. I chose the cheapest ship (4.99) and although I live in Washington state the package was received in 2 days. Everything was perfect! I cannot overstate how great etrailer's customer service/communication was. I have never been a recipient of such great service on-line, no joke! Go with etrailer!!!!

  • Do You have Grease Caps for a 1.935 Bore Diameter Hub
    If there is any corrosion built up on the hub, it could be built up corrosion built up on the hub bore making the hole read smaller. Grease caps do not have to be very deep. They only have to go in far enough to fit snug and tight inside the hub bore. Many grease caps have a flange length of just a little over a 1/4 inch, and most are well under a 1/2 inch. If their is a bit of corrosion, try lightly scrubbing with some steel wool. After cleaning it up, a 1.943 cap like part # F001524...

    The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors - Model 1938 - Chrome Plated (Pair) # BB1938 or # BB1938SS in stainless steel are the closest fit to your hub bore with a diameter of 1.938 inches. These are drive in bearing protectors that will keep the concrete dust out and keep your system well maintained. They are drive in caps that are within 7/1000ths of an inch so they should work seeing as even a digital caliper can have that slim margin of error.

  • What is the Correct Bearing Buddy for Use on 2005 Airstream Classic
    You can determine what type and size of Bearing Buddy to use on your Airstream trailer by taking a look at the current hubs. You will need to know if the hub bore is threaded or not and you'll also need to take a precise measurement of the hub bore diameter using a dial or digital caliper. You'll need to measure to the nearest thousandth of an inch, or three decimal places like 1.781-inches. Once you know your type and size of hub bore you can use the linked page to select those features...
