I could be wrong but I have always oiled bearings and greased gears. I really am looking forward to hearing other options.BD Team Pilot / Get !T - Got !T - Perfect !T

I use Mobil 1synthetic wheel bearing grease in my bearings from 450 size up. I use a light oil in the MCPX BL bearings.

I have "The Greaser" for packing the bearings. Run the bearing on an appropriately sized shaft on a cordless drill to remove excess grease.

It's a bearing that is stuck at one stage of development or going backwards in development. It's not progressingGary Wright

Absolutely works even better than regressing bearings!

Thanks for the recommendation, I see quite a few uses for this. A little expensive here but with free shipping not so bad.

I will personally vouch that corrosionx products work very-very well.

My central A/C unit worked for 29 years in Florida. Yeah...just one example but my best one. My neighboors are on their third AC while my new one is barely over a year old.

This product actually pays for itself and some.

Guys:
Shielded bearings have grease in them from the factory. If you oil them you will wash the grease out, and then you HAVE to constantly oil them every few flights.

I never touch my bearings and get hundreds of flights on them. When they get notchy I replace them with $1 bearings from Avid. Cheaper and easier than messing with greasing tools, etc.

Don't make this harder than it needs to be........

Buy new bearings. Buy quality, shielded bearings and you will end up with new, higher quality, freshly greased bearings in your helicopter. If I take an OEM bearing out because I believe it has become dry from use, it will likely be replaced."Well, nothing bad can happen now."

I have posted this quite a few times.

I have also posted that using "the greaser" will probably overfill a bearing.

It might not matter to a bearing being used in low rpm use but it does in high speed applications.

Mobil 1 SCH400 grease. It is made for bearings and harsh inviroments like a an envilope maker where there is high speed and paper particals.

We used them on Indy car bearings for years. That is what I use with the greaser.

Can you provide a link for the product you're using? I did a Google and while I found a lot of different Mobil greases, I didn't see SCH400. Baring a link, can you post a picture of the product you are using?

That is what I run. If you over pack the bearing, it will ahead any that it can not hold.

After I pack a bearing I roll the OT side while holding the inside to spill out any extra grease before installing it in my Heli.
