How much play should you have in a wooden bearing for a combine straw walker or return pan (wood) bearing.

I think mine are shot they have a lot of slap in them.

And shouldnt those bearings be greased?

I dont ever recall reading a combine book saying to grease a wood bearing.

I was told once not to oil a wood bearing but never anything about grease

Always greased the ones on the Deere combines, even the hard to reach ones.

There should be no slop in them and the grease fittings are on them for a purpose and that is for use. A good bearing will only take only one shot of grease if that much before it pushes out.

Grease walker bearings about once a season. Too much and the dirt and grease make a good grinding compound. Shortens the life of the boxing.

I greased mine on JD 95 when I started haevesting and that was it. Some guys never grease them and they seem to wear good. I think the original ones were treated or presoaked before installing them---maybe.
