    Not really a "tool" but a shop supply. Grease

    Planning to use Mobil28 as the grease in a BBSHD refurb. It is the recommended grease for my airplane so I have to think the same properties would be suitable for a high stress gearbox. It has a great property in that it does not "sling" off parts easily. What is everybody else using? Whatever harbor freight has on sale , automotive grease, 5th wheel grease, lithium ????? For my touring bikes I use Phil grease but the eBike is clearly a different animal with higher torgue and temps.

    I have seen mobil28 recommended here on the forum. there was a link to buy some, I did and opened the chain side of my BBSHD and greased it up. there was something in there, but not much. I liberally greased it, but not overly much. maybe someone will post the link to buy Mobil28 grease. Happy Motoring, e-rod

      Check your local airport the A&P's (airframe and powerplant mechanics) will have a source if not a few tubes for sale.

    My "go to" grease if there is no clear option that is perfect for specific reasons, is any brand synthetic automotive front disc brake wheel bearing grease.

    It must function starting out on a freezing winter morning, and also survive frequent downhill braking heat in the summer. Cheap, available, and works well.

    That being said, I would gladly use Mobil-28 for the Bafang drives.

      Yeah, I've added Mobil 28 to my collection (if it's good enough for Karl...)

      The other specialty one I have is LPS AQUA Bearing Grease. This is the stickiest stuff I have found (almost honey-like) , and was the closest in consistency to what came in the German Heinzmann motors I've had (on their steel reduction gears). http://www.lpslabs.com/site_files/te.../TDS_70514.pdf

      For normal bike parts & bolts, plain old Park Tool poly grease, or the fancy Phil Wood stuff.

        Can anyone point me to a writeup with good pictures detailing greasing a BBSHD?

          That link of mine you quoted wasn't good enough?
