  • Wheel bearing grease
  • Just checking to make sure NLGI #2 (Pennzoil 704) is a proper wheel bearing grease on the 861. Labelled white lithium. Thanks.

  • Most older cars run a "short fiber" wheel bearing grease for drum brakes. That thin stuff tends to liquefy real fast and can ooze out past seals quick enough. So, if you open that can and it looks a bit soupy, you might desire to look into the short fiber wheel bearing grease for drum brakes.

  • Ford specified short fibered wheel bearing grease for the slow speed wheel bearings in Ford tractors.

    I tried to find some about 10 years ago without success.

    I do not know if it is still available.

  • Keep looking, it is now a bit difficult to find, but can be done. At least find some rated for drum brakes.

  • Re: Wheel bearing grease
  • Wheel bearing grease rated for drum brakes as available just about everywhere but I have not been able to find the fibered type, which is preferred for slow speed bearings that are not easily serviced like those in the rear axles of hundred/*01 and prior thousand series Ford tractors.

    Let us know if you know of a source.

    I'd like to keep a can on hand.
