Just seeing what everyone uses and recommends? Before retiring I used a Mobil 1 Red lithium grease from Grainger's on all our Air Handlers, Chilled and Condenser water pumps, etc.

What does the factory use? I've heard you shouldn't mix, but not sure if that is true.

I don't know about mixing, but it would be nice to know what they use. I wouldn't think it would be good to mix petroleum base grease with synthetic.

Do not use a battery or air operated grease gun as you will blow the back seal. A hand operated as shown on video is best because it gives you a free hand to spin the tire. Take your time while doing this. I'm sure it would be better to flush it in the summer for the people up North because the grease will be softer.
