Grease is grease is grease....or is it?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all

Any petroleum gurus out there?

I am asking, because I am in the process of putting new hubs on my boat trailer, complete with pre-greased bearings. I also intend to put Bearing Buddies on the hubs as well.

So my question comes to: Can I load up the new hubs via the Buddies with the grease I normally use in my grease gun (Sheaffer's?) which has a high resistance to water, etc and thus mix brands of grease (with whats in the bearings now). Does this make sense?

I'd clean the grease thats in your bearings now out then put the schaefers in. Im just assuming your using the black stuff? Its awesome grease, all I use...Went 50k on the first set of bearings on my trailer with schafers, good stuff. Whatever grease you use just make sure you can keep the water out..IE Ditch the bearing buddies and just keep your seals in good condition and use the regular dust caps, pay attention to them and they will run almost forever..

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
