Lube for throw out bearing?

Hello,

I ma finally reassembling my 69 6HP. and I am trying to find what lube to use inside the throw out bearing. Is there a manual that lists the types of lube for the different points? I am using marine grease for the shafts. The throw out bearing was filled wth grease when I got it.

It'd be really nice if we knew what you're working on. Pics and a name of blower would really help.

What is it you're describing as a "throw out" bearing. The bearing on the friction wheel ??

If it's the hex shaft the bearing and friction disc slide on synthetic grease is what I use. A very light coat. Others use oil but I like grease as I think it lasts longer.

Not the shaft. The bearing that rides with the friction disc along the shaft. It is mounted on the friction disc hub and rides back and forth along the shaft with the friction disc when changing gears. it looks like the parts manual calls it a thrust bearing. I hope that explains it better.

Thanks for the link to the videos. But it is not a sealed bearing. its open once you slide it off the hub. It looks like it might get packed with grease but Im not sure. This is the last piece I need to finish my tractor but I cant find any info on it.

It's painful trying to narrow it down bit by bit why not post the model and serial number and a picture of it.

That or with the model and serial number we can look up an exploded parts diagram and see what bearing you're asking about.

If it's not sealed what's wrong with just packing or injecting some grease into it ?? Never known grease to be anything but beneficial for a bearings operation.
