Grease packing wheel bearings the right way

Serious common errors are:

* Installing a dry new bearing without first grease packing it.
* Installing a new bearing without replacing the race.
* Packing the bearing and hub SOLID with grease = no air space.
* Over or Under tightening the wheel bearing.

The following Excerpt is a WARNING against excess grease volume....
NOTE:
For best results, ample space is essential in the housing to allow room for excess grease to be thrown from the bearing and for heat dissipation.
It is equally important to retain the grease around the bearing. Normally, the housing should be 1/3 to no more than 1/2 full of grease during bearing assembly.
Too much grease in the housing may cause excess churning of the grease and high temperatures.
