This quick post is in answer to my own question of a week or so ago, regarding lithium based grease in the (Torrington type) one way bearing.

DON'T DO IT

The clutch/bearing slipped twice; not a disaster, but a portent of things to come.

So, ATF only. Thanks Al.

I agree, no grease. I have found air-tool oil works as well as ATF.

I made the mistake of using Moly Grease, it actually fixed my slipping issue. I am going to back and clean everything and use the ATF. My other question is can we use the TriFlow stuff?

If you do a search on TriFlow, you'll see yea's and na's. I'm one of the na's. I never cared for the stuff. I think the "Teflon in suspension" hype is, hype. Get the stuff cold, and it turns to sticky glop! In the field of PTFE lubes, there are some much better products than TriFlow. SpeedX is one I use often.

Al,

Would a Pep Boys carry this SpeedX. Also this only apply's to the One-Way's correct? I used to and still use automotive EP Moly Grease and have always had success with it especially for bearings. I used to used light machine oil for bearings but it never lasted as long in fact I find the bearings get much hotter as compared to the EP Moly Grease.

Yep its the one ways you don't want to muck up with grease.

I use Tri-Flo but the average temp around these parts is 70 degrees, on the 2 or 3 days a year that its actually cold, its usually too windy to fly anyways..

Yes, grease for bearings. SpeedX is often used by high perf inline skate and skateboard guys. I use it on the tail pitch sliders, mainshafts, etc. I've always got it from the source: Corrosion Technologies http://www.corrosionx.com part number 77001

Ok now I got it. A high end bike shop should carry this stuff also or similar to that.


Thanks again

One way lube
I use to race 1/8th scale on road cars. They also have a one way bearing in them that takes quite a beating. I have been using "one way-lube" from Serpent (a brand of model race cars) which has worked great. It looks like ATF, for all I know, it could be ATF put in a bottle with a Serpent label on it..........

You know what else may work is the TCD Kyosho Fluid. It smells exactly like ATF. I happened to have a bottle of that laying around that I did not use when I had my buggy. I will give that a shot as well.

ATF fluid- which type?
To the majority of folks useing ATF in their one way bearings.......
Do you use Dextron 2 or type F? The reason I ask, is that I have a boat with a planetary gearbox that uses ATF for lubrication. The manufacturer specifies Type F.
Thanks

Larry
