I can't really remember but I thought I used a very small amount of lithium grease. As for the rotors, I got scolded by Wren (justified) for cleaning the rotors, since you're not suppost to take the coating off of them. I made the same mistake. Are the rotors still slightly brown colour?

The needle bearings need a special grease because of the high speeds they run at.

It'* not recommended to go with lithium or bearing grease. I believe most of the usual rebuild vendors ZZP, rolling performance etc have the grease available.

Just got off the phone from Eaton, they use high temp grease( blue in color). I told him I had shell high temp high impact, he said should be ok to use, also happened to be blue in color. Think I'mgood to go.
I told him I used brake cleaner for the rotors and that the finish is still intach. He referred to the finish as "clear coat" sais it was ok to use.
Sooner or later I'll get this dam thing back together!!!!

Just so you know, loctite 510 and Permatex anaerobic high temp sealant are one in the same. I ordered the loctite 510 from a local supplier it came in as Permatex wasn't to happy but he explained to me that the permatex is made by loctite, has the same part number as well.
Cost was $18.50 cnd plus taxes, 50ml

If you used brake cleaner on the rotors, you damaged them. The finish may look ok now, but will likely flake off during operation.

My advice to you is to get a replacement set of rotors ASAP.

I also suggest REPLACING the needle bearings. If you don't know how many miles are on the SC already, or you're over 50k, you should never just re-grease those bearings. They're very easy to change.
