    I take a chunk of greese on my palm then take the bearing and keep slappig it against the grease in the palm and it packs it up. Kinda messy but it work. Also you can get a tool that you put the beairng on teh screw a plate of it and it has a zerk you pump the gease in with and it packs it too.

    ok let me re-ask this. main question was how hard is it to get auto hubs off and back on. i an not going to buy new Man hubs because i am hopping that i will not have this front axles much longer.
