I am in the process of rebuilding my gearbox after some bearings broke up. My question is how much and what sort grease should i be putting in it?
Most of the gears are. plastic so no grease is really needed. I use a little marine grease on all the bearings to try and keep moisture out

Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
Thanks thats what I was things when I saw most of the gear where plastic.
Hope the bearings hold out this time.
Had to buy a new gearbox housings 'cos the old bearing casting would not come out. Don't want to go through this again......
I have read a couple places that they don't need any grease. In my experience a little grease is good for the gears and shifting mechanism. All my trans have Lucas wheel bearing grease. I pulled a revo 3.3 trans apart that did not have any grease at all used. The inside was covered in white dust and powder filling all the crevices. That combined with an aluminum housing and it sounded like it had marbles rolling around in a cage when you spun the spur. I'll see if i can dig out the gears and take a pic. I even go to the extent of opening up the bearing and filling em with the wheel bearing grease.
I still wish somebody would make a full steel gear set for the tranny. Once im done with the mods im doing they will be the only plastic driveline components. other than the spur gear. I want to leave that plastic for the main weak link. It a cheap easy fix there.
If it still moves, it aint broke enough!
Now for the next challenge.....
Any one have any ideas how to remove the bearings from the old gearbox housings or shafts.
I'd like to recon the parts, but can't work out how get the old bearing casing out, anyone have any ideas.
I use snap ring pliers.
