I Have Dexter axles so the sheet does not fit my axle for sure. I barely have 5,000 miles on mine. I may pull the wheels this spring to check things out.

I have bearing buddies on camper and boat.My boat is used in salt water and is taken out frequently. (I'm a charter captain) I grease them frequently,and gently to force old grease out. They were on for 8 years when I lifted boat trailer and saw my bearings were a little loose. Decided to take caps off and check/tighten bearings. Bearings looked brand new...no marks of any kind....I do hand pack before reinstalling.

BB on axles without brakes are great, if a seal goes no harm, no foul, but on axles with brakes, a blown/leaking seal can be disastrous.

Said that even through they have the fitting, do it by hand and do not over fill them. I asked if they fill them at the factory he said no they come pre filled by the Hub people not lippart. I asked him if he was going to add grease and he said no there is plenty in there, only add grease when I repack them. Also got a text from his boss at lippert explaining it to me.
Well, I just got the overseas made Timken outer brgs.

Then you can mess with him because top left seal in his pic is different OD ( outside diameter)

You're right, it's the same OD, different ID and the wrong part no. I will return it. Damn good catch
