If you must use BB's, be sure to get Dexter's 10-60 seal that they make for their EZLube axle
(which unlike the BBs actually forces the new grease thru the inner bearing before it comes back out to the front; the EZLube grease is NOT under spring pressure after greasing, whereas the BB grease IS constantly under pressure making it more likely to leak in the first place). Read the stuf on www.dexteraxles.com
on how EZL works; problem is it only comes with new axles...
The 10-60 seal has a DOUBLE lip on it, plus the internal spring to keep it tight. Unfortunately, NAPA's catalog replacement for the 10-60 is NOT a double-lip seal and so far the 10-60 doesn't seem to be in the wholesale catalogs in the Dexter section at the RV places.
I got my spare 10-60s from Scamp
. Even if you don't have a Scamp
, I would advise calling Scamp's 1-800 number and asking them to mail a couple of their repair parts catalog (free) to you, as much of the parts are common across all the Eggs.
