E-Z Lube completely packs the volume inside the hub assembly under some pressure, which is certainly vastly more than necessary, but at least establishes that it could not be possible to manually over-fill the hub with grease.

On the other hand, it is certainly possible to adjust the bearings too tight, and to improperly seat the bearings which causes them to loosen up with use.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
