I think that pumping in the grease too fast, making too much grease in the area, busted the grease seal, is what "he" may have been implying.

Would this cause a loss of too much grease??? I don't think that it would if it is a high temp grease. Greaseable wheels, grease them gently once, twice a year and you should be fine.

I went ahead and did my hubs today . I jacked each wheel up and checked for play in the bearings, all were snug. I then spun the wheel while pumping grease in till fresh grease came out. the old grease did not look bad at all.I figure I can go a few years before I tear down and check the bearings and replace the seals. Once I get some spare bearings and seals I will go a lot of years before tearing down again. I wish there was an easy way to get the bearing and seal numbers other than tear down. You have to love the ez lube hubs, a little over an hours time and a tube of grease and all bearings have fresh grease and are good to go.
