Leaky TO Bearings

I think I know the answer but have to ask anyway, is it normal for TO bearings to leak a little grease? I noticed that a little bit of grease was coming out of mine, perhaps that was what was causing my clutch disk to grab. I mentioned here that my disk seemed a little glazed, probably from this. And it was a brand new bearing from a very well known Corvair vendor.. What do you think? - Thanks. - Jim

I would say No. That TO bearing could not supply enough grease to trash your disk. It is amazing how much oil/grease it takes to trash a clutch disk. The pic here is really oiled up!
