Lock Out Hub Grease

Front right wouldn't engage. Took apart....dirt, old glue?(dried up grease), a couple dead cats, and I swear gold dust....Very little wear. Looks like it has to have very light grease? Any ideas??? Mile Marker Selectro 5 bolt [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]hubs.

Re: Lock Out Hub Grease

I have always used wheel bearing grease. It doesn't need to be full though.

Re: Lock Out Hub Grease

Here's what Warn says:


Clean it up and put a light coat of oil. No grease.
Gnarls.

Re: Lock Out Hub Grease

I use synthetic wheel bearing grease too but just a very light coat on my superwinch hubs. The outer seal doesn't work though.

Re: Lock Out Hub Grease

I always used ATF on my CJ-7. On both the factory and the replacement Warns... Just cleaned them out and soaked them down when ever necessary...

Re: Lock Out Hub Grease

I have used ATF in my hubs for years and years now (maybe 15), with great results, even at -20F they'd still turn easily. In the warmer climates I'd use a light coating of grease, I prefer synthetic.
