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.

Well I figured out the #2 grease business and why of it all. Watched that video and that really helped me recall what I had forgotten. Also had initially “thought” (need to stop that business) the rotor was greased while still in the drum!!! Nope. Gonna gather up all of mine, Korean and originals and do it in one session.

For the amount I use a grease gun this one proved to be right up my alley in price. The grease tubes are available in most stores as well.
