BPW'S TECHNICAL TIPS NO. 8 - CAMSHAFT BUSH MAINTENANCE

BPW camshaft bushes have a reputation for being the most reliable in the industry.

The correct greasing is essential to ensure that the maximum life is obtained from the camshaft and bushes and that brake performance is maintained between services.

At every statutory inspection grease the inner and outer camshaft bearings with BPW ECO Li+ grease. Apply the grease until fresh grease is seen to emerge from behind the dust seals, this will expunge all dirt and moisture.

BPW grease is a Class 3 grease and is the only grease recommended for our axles. The use of thinner greases or auto-lube systems is not recommended and can result in contamination of the brake linings due to the grease escaping past the outer cam bush grease seal.

BPW consumables such as the cam shaft kit and ECO Li+ grease shown can be purchased from BPW or through one of our distributors. To find your nearest distributor visit www.bpw.co.uk/customer_services or contact us on 0116 281 6100.
