Re: Av7 bearing grease?

Rebel Moby /

Do not pack grease into engine bearings - by the time the fuel-oil mixture chases out the grease the bearings might be kaput because the grease might not protect the bearings from galling at engine speeds. Check they roll smooth and give them a little 2 stroke, if they sound or feel sketchy at all change them. Best practice is to change them anyhow because you will need to change the seals which are behind the bearings.

Seals are installed with garter springs facing out, the bearings are installed to the crank shaft for reassembly and are installed with the chamfered inside diameter facing the crank cheek.

Gentle heat (up to 200F) is your friend when assembling bearing to crank and crank assembly to carter halfs.
