How thick is this grease, PV0478??

Can I use some lithium grease, or something from the hardware
store??

So I dont have to wait on an Internet order, and can build this
right now.

Thanks.

You can use ATF or TriFlow.

Dont use grease, use tri flow or a light machine oil such as sewing machine or air tool oil.

Tri flow works great, its teflon based and doesnt attract dirt. Very good stuff for helis.

Oil. Grease will get in to the rollers and keep them from moving in and out.

2nd on what BarracudaHockey said use only oil,4 years ago I tryed
light grease(stupid me and big mistake)that caused me a crash when
I lost my bite in my one way gear.So use light oil unless you want
the same thing and I will not make that mistake again.

Right on guys.

Even before I posted this, just looking at the bearing, there is no
way to put grease in there and get complete coverage, cause what about
under the bearings, grease ain't going in there, then they would be sticking all together.

How long does the tri-flo last in there?? Like how often should this part be lubed?

I usually give everything on my helis a quick spray of triflow like once a month or maybe less often, it depends on how much you fly.

I have been using ATF on mine and I did a test on how long it will take for it to lock up. My raptor 50 took 2 years without relubing to finally lock up. My 90 it going on 3 years and still no lock up. I always use brake cleaner to blast out the original grease then fill a cup with ATF and let the hub soak for a few minutes to make sure it gets in all the cracks and crevises of the rollers and just let it drip for a little bit to get off some of the ecess oil on the outside of the hub and assemble it. Works for me

Have always used ATF. Remove the oneway from the gear and soak in the oil. Work the inner sleeve in and out while turning inside the bearing. After a half hour or so remove the bearing and sleeve and place them on a towel to absorb excess lube.
