    Yeah too much causes excess heat and that can damage the grease (separates out the oil and thickeners). Once they separate the lubricant just seeps away and the hardened thickeners are left behind,...

    Sounds like it's not seating correctly. As John alluded, you'll need to investigate the mating surfaces to find out why not. Could be a ding with a raised bit of metal preventing proper seating or...
