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.

just received my package in the mail very happy with the expedient and quick response to purchase item as described and in very good Construction 563122

- BB2562

Received the Bearing Buddys the following Friday after ordering, very quick delivery. After some fine tuning, they installed very easily. We got out on the water once in July on a Friday and I subsequently had major eye surgery on the following Tuesday. Due that and poor weather, high winds, did not get out for the rest of the year. The hubs have remained dry, and I am hoping to get out fishing in the next couple of weeks as the season has just opened. I will report back in about a month. 509128

Very pleased with overall experience. Fast shiopping, accurate description. Would definantly do business with again. 90382


Ask the Experts about this Bearing Buddy Trailer Bearings Races Seals Caps

  • How to Pick Out Bearing Buddy to fit Trailer Hub
    The way to pick out Bearing Buddies for a trailer hub is based on the diameter of the bore of the hub where the grease cap fits. If you have 2-1/2 inches you most likely would need the # BB2562 which fits a hub bore of 2.562 inches or the # BB2441 which fits a hub bore of 2.441 inches. Since the measurement needs to be exact you'll want to use a caliper like the # PTW80157.

  • How to Remove a Bearing Protector from a Trailer Hub
    Bearing protectors like Bearing Buddies are a very tight fit in a hub. If you cannot wiggle it out by hand then using a rubber mallet and tapping it (not hard but firm) first on the left, then the right, then the top, then the bottom, then repeat, will help loosen it up so you can pull it off. I have included a link to a video as well that should help. Removal of the Bearing Buddy takes place right in the beginning of the video.

  • Bearing Buddies Needed for Al-KO 7200 lb Hubs
    To determine which Bearing Buddy you need, you'll either need to measure the hub bore (inside diameter of hub where grease cap inserts) or provide me with the outer wheel bearing reference number. With the bearing number, I can find the corresponding race for the bearing. The race's outside diameter will match the diameter of bearing protector you'll need. I would recommend replacing the grease seal as well. Use a double lip seal to help prevent blow-out. To determine which seal you'll...

  • Precision Digital Caliper to Measure Hub Bore to Select Correct Bearing Buddy Bearing Protector
    Bearing Buddy protectors are made in lots of sizes, many of which are very close to one another in their diameter. It is really necessary to use a more precise measuring device on the hub's bore unless you know the part number of the one that was lost. You might check the remaining one for any identification. There are two sizes that are close to your 2-9/16-inch dimension, 2.562-inches and 2.717-inches. Bearing Buddy parts that fit hub bore diameter 2.562-inches are either part # BB2562SS...

  • Installing Bearing Buddy Bra # BB23B
    As a first step, make sure you are using the correct Bearing Buddy Bra for your application. The # BB23B you mentioned is sized to fit Bearing Buddies that fit hub bores ranging from 2.240 inches to 2.562 inches, or model #s BB2328, BB2328SS, BB2441, BB2441SS, BB2717, BB2717SS, BB2562, BB2562SS, BB2240 and BB2240SS. Applying a very very small bit of grease (I am talking tiny) to the outside of the Bearing Buddy will allow the bra to slide on easier. While sliding the bra into place,...
