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.
