How often to clean muffler bearings?
I figured they must have one hell of an environment to live in with all the exhaust heat and all.

So how often do you guys disassemble the exhaust and regrease them?

Olive oil, Canola oil, or Mineral oil???

I was thinking Mineral oil since I use it in my mountain bike's brakes too...

Use prop wash to clean the muffler bearings.
Then use a wind sock to dry it (regular socks won't do the job).

"unobtainium"

Hobby King is knocking that off too so be careful.

Just another reason I fly electric! I lost a muffler bearing while cleaning them and it was a 6mo wait for a new one. They were on triple back order.

That's hardly a reason to fly electric. Have you tried sourcing a muffler bearing for one of those yet?

A little to the right and down!

It all depends. Are they regular muffler bearings, or power assisted?

I use lithium grease, but then I don't want to start a whole battery vs. nitro thing

Now, bumper hinge oilers... that is another story...
If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

I grease my muffler bearings when I change the magic smoke in the rx bats. I will check the grease level in the muffler bearings when I check the calibration of my negative altitude indicator.Screw It, I'm gonna fly
