Cam bush/ Bearing: For the lubrication of Cam bush: Add grease every three months; Fill in grease until new grease is overflowed around the nipple.

Replacing grease for wheel hub bearing: Each time when replace the brake lining, or at least once a year, or after the vehicle road mileage reaches 150,000kms, remove each part from axle in order, thoroughly clean the bearing and sealing and sealing parts (with diesel oil), check the wearing condition, if any part fails, replace it immediately. Clean the inside of the wheel hub, and then add grease. Apply 3~5mm thickness grease on the surface of the wheel hub cavity. Apply 6-10mm thick grease on the rolling surface of the outer race of bearing. The clearance of the rollers of the rollers of the inner race of bearing should be filled with grease. Note: We suggest that whenever remove the wheel hub bearing, the hub sealing ring should be replaced by a new one, so as to obtain safe sealing performance.
