Wheel Bearing Grease Question

Hi,

I'm about to repack my wheel bearings in my 1984 Scamp 13 for the first time and am wondering if any high temp wheel bearing grease will work for my trailer bearings? I picked up a tube of MasterPro Chemicals High-Temp Wheel Bearing Grease from Oreilly's yesterday, but am starting to wonder if I should get a grease that's specific to trailers. ANy help or tips is much appreciated!

Thanks!

Spencer

Wheel Bearing Grease Question

Hi,



I'm repacking hte bearings in my 1984 Scamp Trailer for the first time and am wondering if any automotive wheel bearing grease will work? I picked up a tube of MasterPro Chemicals High-Temp Wheel Bearing Grease from Oreilly's which is a lithium base grease, but starting to wonder if I should get one of the more expensive greases meant specifically for a trailer. Your thoughts?

Floyd I thought you liked the "blue" something-or-the-other. Is there really any noticeable difference in these greases? I mean comparing synthetic to synthetic etc.

I DO know it's recommended to clean ALL the old grease out before adding new grease just in case of compatibility issues etc.
