I have always used my home made greaser. An 1" steel pipe cap that has been drilled and tapped

for a grease fitting and a leather gasket. All for about $9 bucks.

The key to making the greasers work is to clean around the rotor spindle to body hole with a tooth brush and penetrating

oil. If done right the grease goes in the rotor with little effort.

Of course it's always a good thing to support our community McGivers as well.

Darryl

Forgot to ad a couple of things. Grind or sand flat a spot on top of the fitting

for the C clamp to bear and to remove the casting seam on the bottom.

Good Luck,

Darryl

I didn’t know drums needed to be greased, let alone how. Hope there’s a video on YT showing how this is done. Otherwise, I’d have no idea how to start.

There is a picture of drum being greased in American Thunder III page 252 or 253.

Dumb question but what grease do we use? PK mentioned a #2 viscosity lithium grease but my google foo can’t seem to pin down a brand type or name for me to hunt. He said #3 was was too thick or anything marine.
