    Am I messing up by using WD40 and nothing else after cleaning bearings with seals off

    I just cleaned my hub bearings but I only used commpressed air and WD40. Will not using some type of grease/oil in bearings cause issue or will a good cleaning with seals off and some wd40 do a decent job? Thanks!

    I think motor spray will "wash out" the bearings better if they're pretty gritty. But I just clean them with WD40 sometimes too. Its about the perfect light oil you want to use on bearings. I also use Trinity light bearing oil. You might want to check out the RPM bearing sprayer to really blast them.
