I have a few small ball bearin

I have a few small ball bearings that are about 1 1/4 inch OD. I cleaned all of the dirt out of them and repacked them with what I had around the house and they work great but the grease is getting out of the seal. I used Lithium grease. Is there a special bearing grease that I can repack these with? Anyway, I was just wondering as the Lithium grease would slowly makes it way out when spinning the bearing fast.

Rich,
Depending on the application, Lithium grease may be a bit on the light side...hence it thinning and blowing past the seals. Generally, for automotive applications (wheel bearings), I use Castrol GL-2 wheel bearing grease, without any issues.

David
