I've just replaced the front wheel bearing in my 33 with a SKF kit. Am I right in assuming that it is prepacked with grease?. There was no instructions and it looked to be sealed.
I'm used to doing front bearings on rear wheel drive cars and having to pack them, but this is the first front wheel drive bearing that I have done.
It also wasn't as hard as I thought it would be going by some of the threads posted previously.

If it was sealed both sides then it should have been pre-packed with grease. It is easy o tell be feel if it is greased as it will be smooth and have a small amount of resistance to roatation when cold. A non greased bearing will spin freely in comparison.

Checked with the parts supplier this morning and he assures me that the bearing is prepacked. Thats a relief.
