I verified this by taking a new unit apart.
So if ya wanna grease em, ya might wanna pop the bearings out and remove the inner seals.
Now...back to the race!
Thanks for the info. I don't know how to tell the difference between sealed and unsealed bearings.

I don't see that there is any place for excess grease to squeeze out, so it is guesswork to know when to stop. Does it squeeze out at the bottom of the housing between the bearing and the housing?
