If you go to the autoparts store ask for a gallon of parts cleaner fluid. Then get a little metal can and place the fluid in the can and put bearing in fluid. You can also purchase a brush that will help.

You just use one hole to fill, I use the port on the cap because I had a hard time removing the allen screw from the hub. The instructions for my hub say to fill it completely to the top. One thing I have noticed after I fill and then use the trailer the oil will drop a little. You will want to purchase a small bottle of gasket maker and use this on the threads of the allen screw when you put the screw back in.

Make sure when you put it all back together you tighten the nut up and then back it off and check your backlash. You do not want the nut to tight or loose. So you will want to tighten the nut to set everything and then back it off a little to check backlash. Once you have it set then put in your codder pin.

Today I replaced the seal on my trailer and cleaned my bearings and then reassembled everything and then filled it with oil and the oil leaked out of the back of the seal. I am thinking it is the wrong seal. I went to advance auto parts with the seal that came out of it and they just got one off the shelf that looked the same. The pictures attached are what I bought. When I installed the seal it was barely crooked but not enough " in my opinion" to leak. So does anyone know if I have to use a specific seal or will the one I bought work.

It has to be an oil bath seal, which is different than a grease seal. Oil seals will have two lips, one with a tight spring. Grease seals won't work with oil.

Do you still have your old seal, should be a part number on it. If not pull off the other hub and you should find the part number on that seal. May need to wipe it off with some of the part cleaner and a rag. Some stores might not have this seal, I found a local bearing supplier and they had it in stock.
