Lubrication System for vehicles
Lubrication Systems were first fitted to buses some 40 yrs ago, at the request of the manufacturers. The primary reason for fitting the system to these vehicles was the difficulty encountered when trying to lubricate the various steering/suspension points due to the bus/coach bodywork. Engineers soon became aware that lubrication fed at regular intervals extended component life, reduced down time, and increased productivity. It is generally accepted by most engineers that it is easier and more efficient to pump lubricant into a bearing in motion, than to force it into a bearing when static.
