Slowly rotate the wheel while SLOWLY pumping with a HAND grease gun (NEVER USE A POWER LUBE GUN, IT WILL BLOW THE INNER SEAL!). When fresh grease gets pushed out between the outer bearing and race you are there.

Remember ROTATE the wheel while SLOWLY pumping!

Don't ask me how I know!

To reduce the ammount of grease needed to full the hub cavity here is what I do.

I attached a short length of small dia.Tygon tubing to an extra Zerk fitting. After installing the hub on the spindle and before installing the outer bearing, insert the Tygon tubing as far as possiable into the cavity between the hub and spindle. Then pre-fill the cavity with grease as much as possiable. Wiggle the tubing from side to side around the spindle while slowly backing it out of the cavity.

Install the inner bearing, retainers, locking nut as per the instructions.

Then slowley continue adding grease to the spindle Zerk while rotating the wheel untill full etc.
