When in doubt  Google other info.

How do you know when you've over greased if as he says to fill the cavity? :scratch_head:

Zerk fitting 101 - clean it first

note that most sealed bearings come pre-greased from the factory with a 25%-35% grease fill. This is all the grease the bearings will ever need, because the relubrication interval (explained below) is longer than the expected life of the bearing.

DON’T JUST GUESS. It can be tempting to give the bearings a pump of grease each day, or to pump until grease comes out from under the seals.  However, this effectively destroys the seal’s ability to keep contaminants out of the grease; and too much grease “churns” inside the bearing, generating resistance and leading to rapid heat build-up.

When greasing a bearing by means of a zerk, make sure the zerk and the grease gun nozzle are clean, and if possible, make sure the zerk is always covered between greasings. Otherwise, you could be pumping dirt and contaminants straight into your bearings.

Riding mower.  How you grease it may depend on how you want to ride it.

A Yank  chopped a Murray ride on into 3 pieces and put them in 4 bb boxes.
He welded the pieces together,used it for a year or two and then sold it to me.
Now I know how to grease the damned thing so thanks for posting!
