When I was a senior in high school I had a job professionally polishing truck wheels. I still have the urge to polish every piece of aluminum I see. From greasy junk to soft mirrored perfection the satisfaction was immense. The mess of the process on the other hand. People though I wore mascara even after a gojo shower the polish compound just wouldn’t come off some areas. Great memories ty

Use super degreaser from oreillys in purple container or zep industrial parts cleaning fluid. Works real nice.

That’s 75 90 gear oil. All hubs leak a little as the heat expands and contracts the oil. You can clean this with a dry rag in 20 sec

Oil doesn't expand. It's the heat causes pressure in the axel which allows the out to seep the the hub cover breather hole as designed. If it wasn't there it would blow wheel seals. But correct on oil weight.

They don't leak this much that gasket is bad they will seep a little when the oil soaks thru the poors of the metal hub but it's never enough to drip onto the rim

My dad uses this stuff to clean his truck all the time, I think the owner or whoever asked for before and after pictures. It cleans the whole truck really good, and saves him hours of washing.

Interesting how the spot you miss sprayed on the fender, holds water beads after direct pressure from a power wash and full force of air pressure won’t move it off that spot. Not hating at all, stuff looks sweet; I’m just honestly curious like from a scientific pov

That really cleaned it up. Being as I have cancer now I would definitely be wearing rubber gloves. And hat, goggles, rubber jacket, rubber pants and boots. Some chemicals will kill you 10-20 years from now. All I'm trying to say is be safe. Wear protective gear accordingly.

Greasy wheels mean there’s something wrong with the hub. There is a small leak somewhere on that hub cap. Or someone over full the hub oil.

Fun fact, power wash that rim in almost any way the contour or the rim shoots the water back at you. Notice it never showed the power washing of center of rim. It's a messy disaster.

Also if this is remotely close to purple power or super clean, don't use on polished raw aluminum. It'll eat the shine right off the stuff.
