GE List. Its been a while since I've been on the list. I just changed tires on my RT and noticed play in the rear drive pivot bearings so I removed the drive to check the bearings. The outboard bearing was still wet with the grease. The Inboard was dry. There was no real wear on either bearing. Its probably been 10k miles since I've had the rear drive off.
I have two questions:
1. Is Honda moly 60 still the preferred grease for the bearings when reassembled???
2. I had a little problem getting the outboard pivot bolt out because the bearing would not release. I fortunately was able to use a large crescent wrench and pop the bolt out of the bearing. Is red locktite still recommended to lock the bearings on the bolt??? This could have been a real problem and I think I was lucky.
Thanks for any comments.
