No moly for ball bearings! Moly is good for pins bushings things that slide. I have two grease guns for my crushing spread one with mobil lux for the ball bearings and one with the moly grease for the loader pins. The moly grease will reduce the life of ball bearings.
I am in complete agreement with this. Try to keep
moly out of anything that spins quickly. Bushings, puns, ball joints, tie rods, Johnny joints all do well with a high moly grease. I like valvoline Ford/Lincoln/mercury grease, it’s cheap and has a reasonably good moly content. Spinny stuff gets Mobil 1 synthetic in my shop (I think I actually have amsoil in that gun right now). I would say I probably get 20% more life out of bearings and ujoints using the right grease in them.
Everyone should definitely do some reading over on bob is the oil guy next time you get a chance to kill an hour. It’s the ibb of lube.
There’s a lot of science that goes into grease, and you can quickly figure out why moly is great on sliding or slowly rotating joints, and not the greatest for applications where you want shit to roll. Shits not going to go up in flames if you use moly grease in bearings, but you are not going to get the best life or performance out of them
