Steps to Assemble Tapered Roller Bearings

1. Inspect the Bearings

Check for Damage: Inspect the bearings for any signs of damage, including scratches, dents, or rust. Do not use damaged bearings.

Verify Part Numbers: Ensure you have the correct bearing type and size for your application.

2. Prepare the Work Area

Cleanliness: Maintain a clean work area to prevent contamination of the bearings. Use clean rags to wipe surfaces.

Gloves: Wear gloves to prevent transferring oils and dirt to the bearings.

3. Grease the Bearings

Apply Grease: Apply a thin, even layer of bearing grease to the rollers and the raceways of the inner and outer rings.

Proper Amount: Do not over-grease the bearings; excessive grease can cause overheating. Follow manufacturer recommendations for the right amount of grease.
