Hey
Do not use grease!! Use Tri Flow or ATF. These bearings in the auto hub are floating, grease inhibits these bearings and causes them to lock up JOHN

In my experience, I have had the best results with grease. I use Tri Flow grease in my auto hub and after the first lock up when I was using Tri flow oil, I have gone over 250 flights without a single lock up.

TT also now ships grease along with the hubs and it seems to be working well for others. Make sure you pack the bearings with grease and once you think you have enough in there, pack some more .

I now have the new Quick UK auto hub and it is very smooth and no lock ups so far.

The idea behind not using grease is the rollers needs to move in and out , if the rollers have grease or too much grease they will stay out and you will have a lock up,, when we fly a lot of oil from the fuel gets in the rollers and so you really don't need to use grease but you may want to clean it from time to time.

When i build my 90SE I researched the topic to the end. I could not find a conclusive argument/remedy.

So when I installed mine I packed it full of Teflon grease, I did not even clean or remove the old oil/grease in there. I use these grease on the bearings of my racing bicycle and had it on the shelf. Works perfectly after about 30 flights. Maybe it is just luck.

I have repacked it with the grease at about 25 flights. Still going strong and maybe I am the lucky one with a faultless hub!!

I had my Raptor 50 hub lock up and tried the oil route, It worked for about 10 flights then locked up again. Then I tried the Triflow grease and have never had a problem with it since in the past 8 months of flying.

There is theory and then there is what works. It is time for the theory to be re-Theorized on this issue.

Hub Locking
I used Hi-temp bearing grease and after 30+ flights no problems...It's clear, go with the grease, and if that doesn't work try the oil. Maybe they both. work
