Just takes a couple of minutes, but if I see a bearing start to run a little warmer than normal I know well in advance that something needs to be done.

So what temperature is normal for a bearing to run ?

Don't know what normal is, first thing is if one is running hotter that others doing the same job it's a red flag. I just get a feel for what normal is on the particular machine and watch for changes.

I don't like seeing them getting over 200, though they're quite alright to 250

I have two half tons with the coolers, but they still get up to 220 to 230 F with a load...

thats pretty hot.

Mine will hit about 180 - 190 and usually stay there with heavy loads. (15k+) more then that and I start getting worried. Towing hard and high temps over 200 I have blown my trans seal twice.

when I hauled cattle for the public, I added a aftermarket cooler and put a push fan in front of it.. Worked great... But then it was a turbo 400... :cowboy:
