cups and cones, just forgot to add a few studs and lug nuts.

Not Acadianbob, and I will probably get a lot of flack, but when pumping new grease in on the old, I would inspect the grease for flakes of metal and if none showed, I would not worry about it. The old grease doesn't wear out. Bottomline, if you're worried about it, just remove the hub and take the cones out and clean and inspect them and the cups, repack, replace the seals and re-install and pump the hubs full. You don't have to take the old grease out unless you find a bad cup or cone.

If you kook at how the bearing packer cone tool works and using it correctly, there is no need to rotate any wheel to pack bearings. the bearing receives the same amount of lube thru all the rollers at the same time, and the bearing doesn't get smaller on one side because there's weight on it. if the ez-lube hub grease system is used, it adds lube just like the tool. if you don't like the mess of hand packing, add a bunch of grease to a zip-lock bag and work it in that way. in the old days, we used vasoline in race-car front bearings and no seals....1/4 mile @ a time. less rolling resistance.

If your grease looks like this I would not bother shooting newer grease into the hub. They should be removed, cleaned, and inspected. Or they might damage other components.

Keep in mind new grease in spotlessly clean hubs with new cups & cones will change color within just a few miles. If in doubt, pull the hub.

Back in the day...wiped what you could out. Pan with gasoline and a brush. Wipe dry and reinstall.

Then we had to get safe and stuff.
