Hi Rob1962

Yes pack the tail gearbox with lithium grease do not put grease anywhere else.
use tri-flow oil on other bits

What about the thrust bearings?

It's my understanding that you should grease the crap out of those and not be afraid to smear some on the spindle where it passes through the bushings either. You're supposed to use a certain type of grease too. I use Bosch Purple Grease.

Tri flow grease is excellent.

I use it with the Greaser also to do my bearings.

THAT'S IT!!!
I knew someone here would alert me to the type of grease I used in my Heliboy in the early 80's. Thanks! Now I know what to look for. BTW, I thought it was red, but it's been awhile since I've seen the syringe I had it in.

I would be cautious of using the old schluter grease. I am not sure, but if memory serves me correctly it is NOT a synthetic grease but one that may be petroleum based. If so it will cause deterioration of the plastic tail gearbox. In short order this will make the bearings fit too loosely in their seats and have you chasinga high frequency vibration.

ALWAYS use a synthetic grease anywhere around GRP plastic parts.

purple barney grease...
oldfart,
Thanks for the heads up. I don't remember what the tail rotor housing was made of on the Heliboy or the Kalt 50, but I didn't have a problem. Thanks for the heads up anyway. I'll look for something in a synthetic grease for the Hawk.

I never thought about the grease affecting the plastic greabox. Is the new Bosch grease synthetic?

Bosch Grease
Does anyone know where to get the Bosch Purple grease anymore? I had some from years of heli building on the Schluter kits but I am running low.

I got it from a place in Denver only to find out I could have got it a local tool store. This tool store is no Home Depot. It is an old time, neighborhood, hardcore store. They sell Bosch pneumatic hand tools and that's what this stuff is made for.

Because of the availability from the tool store, I didn't save the info on where I got the grease. However, I found it the first time by just searching "bosch purple grease" online.
