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..

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need

    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
