Sorry to say, but The greaser is the way to go. It forces the old grease out and packages the new in. If the bearing was larger you can manual force it in like the front wheel bearings in the car, but our bearings are too small to do it.

Since you bought the right heli (EVO very good Choice) invest in The Greaser and do the job right. The Greaser recommends U76, but the shop who sold The Grease has some other grease and seems to work fine.

I'm looked at "The Greaser" at PetesRC.com $39.99! seems like alot of money for that thing. Seems like someone could improvise a greaser out of a large syringe. Where's McGyver when you need him.

It's worth the money 10 times over!!! I wish I would've known about it back when I was into rc cars. I bought a copy of the greaser from a guy one time. It was garbage, flat out. The plunger wasn't big enough for the mainshaft bearings, let alone for the beaings used in rc cars. at least the greaser comes with a capand can if many sized bearing.

one thing in this hobby that is as important to me as my heli's is my heli tools. DTI, paddle aligners, hardened hex tools, ball link sizer, nut drivers, micro spanners, pitch gauge, crank lock, bearing puller, the greaser etc etc. Makes life so easy to have all the gear.

buy the greaser....I love it.

Put grease in the palm of your hand and press it in to the bearing. It’s faster and easier than the greaser.

and messier and a good way of introducing foreign materials into your bearing like bits of dust grit and dead skin unless you clean your hands well before each bearing you do. Faster and easier than the greaser???? Do you actually have one? there is nothing faster than popping a bearing in the greaser and pushing on the cone. all done. clean up is the same. I used to use the hand job method but the greaser is the way to go.

Get the greaser as a lot of the guys are suggesting. I have it and it works great on the small bearings. Even the sealed bearings will take grease if you apply slow steady pressure and watch the old dirty grease ooze out. Well worth the $$.

I so rarely rebuild that I find its better to replace the bearings. They usually feel a little notchy by then and I don't see the point of the greaser....

Am I wrong?
