    Shaft Carrier Bearing Automatic Grease Set Up

    I know some don't like the shaft bearing set up, but I have to try to get the cavitation down for this year racing,
    I know that when the grease is gone you have problems,
    I was going to add an extension hose to the grease fitting,so I could get to it easily,
    But then decided to go with an automatic type Lub-O-matic, it keeps a constant pressure of grease all all times while the shaft is turning,
    when the shaft does not turn, the grease doesn't come out,
    I was going to zip tie it to one of my water lines, it works at any angle,

    That's the little ball bearing bastard held in my the rubber flap thing on the PTO? The outside of mine is slightly bent. I know that don't matter if the center rides true but I thought this was lubed by engine oil?

    if that thing keeps pressurized grease on the seal your hull is gonna be a mess after riding. Make sure you grease it AFTER you ride each time that pushes any water out if u have bearings in there and keeps it from rusting...

    I really don't want to jack the thread but I can't get an answer anywhere. Is this 42-43 in the link below and if so is it not lubed by engine oil?

    I would be concerned with water pressure backing up into your grease cup if the seal leaks.

    No, thats the seal on the PTO. The OP is an aftermarket setup that replaces the OEM carbon seal. Plenty of old threads and fun reading around.

    Anyone running the 12px assembly? Does away with the rubber hose.

    I use to greasing the bearings after each race, and I thought there had to be a better way,
    so I saw this at Grainger,
    http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg...rue&sst=subset
    http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg...3&Catalog=main
    I bought it from E-bay for $10.00 and it came with 3 different pressure springs, for light medium and heavy pressure,
    the theory is that as the shaft turns it pulls grease from the unit so it stays lubed and never runs dry,
    I have been doing some endurance races in the past and I did not want it to run out of lube with over several hours of riding,
    I have put the light spring in for starters, and it says that with the oil seals on each end of the carrier bearing, it should hold the grease in, and only draw it when necessary,
    I will keep everyone posted,
