Peak 200 drum grease seals

Hi Guys,

How far in should the grease seals be pressed in the back of the hubs. Until they touch the bearing cups and cant go any further or should they be further out than this?

Cheers,

Mark.

I don't have Peak drums, but I usually seat mine until they're about flush with the hub surface. If they stop seating and still protrude a bit, it should be fine, but try to get them even around their circumference. All they're doing is holding the grease in place, but they do have to ride on the correct contact surface of the spindle.

Trailer Guy can tell you definitively (in case I've been doing it wrong.)

Absolutely correct Gents. If you have a look in the trailer stickies and 'part 2' of 'how to change a set of taper roller bearings', you'll see a pic of a peak hub and where to seat the rear seal.
