    Trailer bearing seal

    Iíve had to replace trailer bearings for a WOF.
    My question is which way around does the seal go?

    Yes this does seem a dumb question but I do know which way it came out, but is it right in the first instance?

    Cheers that’s what I thought and that’s how it came apart. Just checking it hadn’t been put together wrong previously.

    flat face to the washer that goes on the stub axle, grease it. then add a little sand, will run it in a treat.

    I hope you didn't put any grease on the ID of the seal, goes on dry as its a fixed part. Grease the lips only

    No, just take the cap off and add some sand - that will fix it.

    Nah, ya seal will spin on the stub axle and may loosen up over time and let water in if a boat trailer. Or it'll stop spinning when it drys out and work properly.

    They generally go together with trace grease in that area and driving to the boat ramp and backing the thing straight into the water without pausing to let the hubs cool down does more to let water in...

    Nope it'll be fine. Assembled plenty and never worried about getting it spotless and never had a problem. That's boat trailers too.
