Carrier Bearing Lube
While a local shop had my Georgetown up on a lift recently I took the oportunity to wander around underneath it. It was about a 25 minute drive to get to the shop so everything was warm. However I was surprised to find that the driveline was warm to the touch, almost hot. Feeling along it it seemed like the hottest part of the drive line was at the front carrier bearing.
Anyone know how to lube these? I'm not getting any noise from it but it does have 45,000 miles on it. So I'm sure some lube would be appreciated. There where no zerk fitting on the carrier bearing.
P.S. It's a heck of a thing watching your rig rise up on one of those lifts. 20,000lbs going up into the air like magic. The lift did make some groaning sounds.
