Grease splatter

I've got grease on my wheel that is coming out of the EZ lube cap. I've changed the cap. I'll admit that I might have out too much grease in there but why is it coming out? I can silicon the cap in but that seems unnecessary.

You may have a bad bearing causing the grease to overheat and turn to liquid.

Get the wheel off the ground and see if it has play in it and turns smooth.

Hand repack bearings/reassemble/adjust brakes
And =====stop using those dang EZ / pumping grease in

If you have put too much grease in EZ Lube axles... there is a decent chance you have also blown out the inner/back grease seal.

Ez-Lube grease procedure

I have Dexter axle ez-lube. Pump grease into zerk in the middle. Exiting grease returns around the rim.

Exiting grease should be removed from the cup as much as possible. I use a flat bladed screw driver to dig out the exiting grease. (The cup edge is sharp, so using a finger is a problem.)

Excess grease in the cup may get forced out passed the cap. High temperature can certainly do that.
