I have a tube, bring your greaser by and I'll load it up. I don't remember which Auto Parts store I bought it at.

Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for Radio Control Helicoptering.

Petes is no longer running as far as I know. I would think that any extreme pressure wheel bearing grease will do the trick.

I recommend the Lubriplate Electric Motor Bearing grease.

What you want to watch out for is grease that has a gritty texture to it. Most Wheel bearing grease's (Like the red stuff) has a small bit of grit in the grease.

I know the Lubriplate grease works very well.

Slim: PM me your address and I'll mail you a glob. The tube I have will last me more than my lifetime. Pete "The Greaser Guy" is really high on 76 Multiplex EP #2 grease, and he has the justification for it with his testing, but I really doubt that most of us will ever see a difference between this grease and another kind in a lifetime of flying.

I think most NAPA parts stores carry that grease. Or at least they used to carry it. Thats where I bought mine.

I use a #2 moly grease for my heli bearings. You don't want to mix different types of grease with each other. Otherwise it can turn into a solid mixture and destroy your bearings.

Here's a chart

I use Mobil 1 Synthetic grease and have no problems. Have heard about several guys more knowledgeable than me using it too. You can get that at just about any auto parts store.

Why not lithium based?
I bought an assembled big block chevy engine. It had been assembled with white lithium grease. It had been sitting after the assembly for an unknown period of time and the grease dried up and the engine would not turn over. I had to disassemble the engine and clean out all the lithium grease. Since then I will not even own lithium grease.

That really limits your choice of grase. Most grease on the market today are lithium soap based, even synthetic.

If the grease drys up, don't blame the grease base material. Blame the mfg of the grease. All grease will have oil separation. Depending on the grade, some dose more than the others.

I've been using the Mobil One Synthetic grease (red in color) it works super. You'd be suprised how much grease you'll go through once you start using the greaser. Especially if you regrease the bearings in a section during reassembly after crashing.
I've also used TriFlow grease, but it's hard to find in stores here.

If you skip me I can't play!

I am surprised the Triflow grease even worked in the bearings. It just seems too thick in my opinion. The same for the 1 Mobil Grease. The Lubriplate is very, thin, compared to the others. It not runny or anything, but it defiantly not globby like the triflow grease is.

Don't get me wrong, triflow grease has a place, but in sealed precision bearings would not be the place in my opinion.

Your mileage may very though.
