Re: More 5400/ KR500 rotor Questions



Hello All,
Do not forget to use a water shredding grease ( rust prevention )
in the bearing race area.
Never use a calcium based grease,this type mixes with water and dis-
troys the lubricating ability.If possible use one with a wide temp. range
which goes below zero and retains its lubricating capabilities. I'm using
aviation grade bearing grease.May be you can get a small amount some place.
Regards
