Rear Axle Bearing Lubrication

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of putting the rear end back together in my 1958 A-120, 4x4, with an RA10 Rear Axle (full floater).  I changed the bearings in the hubs after having the drums turned.  When I removed the bearings they actually looked pretty good and clean.  Originally I figured these bearings were lubricated with fluid (grease) from the differential, since there was no wheel bearing grease present.  But, I want to make sure.  The bearings were not cheap.

My '59 B120 4x4 has a goofy seal/bearing jam nut that rubs against the inside of the axle shaft flange to keep gear lube out of the bearings and the bearings are grease packed. 

Not sure if it's the same axle as yours  or not
