    grease hose for driveshaft hand pump or air compressed?

    read a few threads on the matter with a few different opinions on to use hose or whether to remove hose and go in from the nipple on the housing.Would just a few hand pumps (4-5) or a grease gun air compressed at a lighty 30-40 psi work a little better?I have 41 hrs on ski and never have added grease, hose seems soft, but hav'nt looked closely yet

    don't overthink it Dave. Just give the fitting a handful of pumps and call it a day.

    or

    have some fun and crank that air compressor up to about 150 psi and pump and see where all the grease ends up...

    Your just greasing the seal, bearing is completely sealed. One or two pumps with a grease gun and your done for a long time. Overgrease it and the seal will push out.

    its true, the grease acts as a barrier for water and doesnt really do anything for the bearing

    I usually pump it through the hose, untill the hose starts to expand a bit... that way there is a little pressure to help the grease go into the intermediate housing
