Can Double-Lip Grease Seals Be Used Without Bearing Buddy Grease Caps  

Question:

MUST I use the Bearing Buddy with these seals to make them work? I suspect so as that would then apply pressure to the o-ring to seal out the water on the stainless steel ring but what to validate so I can put together a full order. My preference is NOT to us the bearing buddy but I want the benefit of the seal buddy system. Thanks

Expert Reply:

Bearing Buddy bearing protectors do require use of a double-lip grease seal that will handle their grease pressure. But you can still use a double-lip grease seal without using Bearing Buddy protectors if you wish to have a stronger seal. All double-lip grease seals we offer are shown on the linked page. You can match up the correct seals by using the part number from your existing seals or by measuring the seals' inner and outer diameters.

Part # BB60011 is correct for hubs that use inner bearing 25580 and Bearing Buddy size 2.441-inches.
