Ic wheel bearings

Recommended Posts

Are you planning to pull the entire assembly apart?

 

If not, you may have a zerk inside the cap.  Do a search for Posi Lube Spindles to see if that is what you have.  No need to pull apart if you do.

If that's the case you don't even need to take the tire off, you can pull the dust cap off without taking the tire off. What I usually do to check bearings if lift the house off the ground using a floor jack, rotate the tire by hand so that its rotating fairly quickly and then just listen for any roughness, should be fairly quiet. If you hear any grinding then you need to pull hubs and look for damaged races and bearing. On trailers that don't go in the water you can go several years without repacking the bearing or like lil ripper said, some hubs have grease thru. hubs now where you probably never have to repack. (bearing buddies are different, they only grease the front bearing!!) Boat trailers are a different story, those should be repacked regularly due to the fact that they get submerged in water. Good luck!!

Joe and LRG are right. My guess, only a guess, but I have to believe IC is way to cheap to use Posi Lubes. Do they? Bottom line is to error on the safe side but Boar, you haven't had that long enough to need bearings have you? Unless it sat in lots of water or the trailer isn't square they usually last quite a while. I would be more concerned to be sure you get the pivots lubed up each year. Pull a cap and if the grease is good make your decision.

They get used on the hydraulic frames for sure.  Not sure how long they've been using them.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
