I file the Needle to a much sharper angle and narrow it all I can and it usually will slip under the edge of the seal, to inject grease.. Sometimes, even New bearings can hold a lot more grease than is in them from the supplier.. I think it is worth doing..

There is areason for some "room" in the bearing. Maybe not in the case of a hay rake, but I have seen bearings overheat and cause real problems when too much grease is added. The manufacturer has WAY more expertise in this than the farmer mechanic.

Farmers have to be everything from medical to mechanical the back bone of how this great nation started. The willingness to say “Sure Why Not I will give it a try" is what set’s you apart from others. “Do not judge a book by its cover”, or be fooled into thinking those who ask questions are simple minded and have no skills. The best teacher is learning from others. Keep on teaching those who ask no matter how simple the question is to you. Your answers have value passing on knowledge which is lost to new generations. This forum works well when all pull together to help. Thank you all for the help.

Oh sure...!!

Mass-Produced parts are seldom what they should be and if behoves the "Farmer Mechanic" to be SURE the new parts and/or Bearings are ready for extended service. I bought a Ryobi Limber and found the grease was "IN" the bevel gear compartments but NONE was "ON" either gear..!! Why would anyone think a "Farmer Mechanic" could not be an Aircraft Mechanic at the same time..?? Ron A&P
