Hubs and Spindles Owner’s Manual
We recommend changing your grease every 3 months or 1000 miles, whichever comes first.
Attach a conventional grease gun to the grease fitting. As new grease is pumped into
the system, the old grease is forced out of the bearings and into the dust cap
reservoir. Remove all excess grease from the dust cap reservoir, replace the
rubber expansion access cap and repacking is completed. Use Lucas “Red n’ Tacky” grease or a quality lithium based marine grease such as Castrol Pyroplex red grease.
See the manual above for detailed instructions for re-greasing your Super Lube Spindle and Super Lube Hub.
Once thoroughly cleaning all of the hub and bearing components, you should efficiently check each bearing cone and cup (race) for rust, bluing, or pitting. If you see any of these three things, you should replace them right away. You also need to clean and check each spindle for bluing, pitting, or heat induced cracking. You must remember to always change the inner seal and outer locking clip at each hub removal.
