Lubrication Recommendations

Introduction Engineering Data Catalogs How to Order Contact Us

Each application has its own specific lubrication requirements.  Always refer to the service manual and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations prior to servicing your heavy duty truck.  Tyson tapered roller bearings come from the factory with a light coat of preservative designed to keep the bearings from rusting.  It does not provide adequate operating lubrication. The bearings must either be thoroughly greased or immersed in the oil used in oil bath lubrication before assembly.  The bearings and lubricant must be kept clean through the installation process.  It is not necessary to remove the preservative coating before installation as long as the bearing is kept clean. We also suggest that different lubricant types (oils and greases) not be mixed.
