    Any mix can be used IE petroleum based or synthetic. Ratio is aprox 50/50 or until pour-able.

    I like amzoil rear end greese and a synthetic wheel bearing greese at a 50/50 mix...it will be poar-able at first ,then it usually kinda gels....works great...my gpr is on the same bearings for 6 years now..

    I use the SKF heavy duty bearing grease, which is very water resistant, and never have any problems with it. The bearings themselves are open, but there are 2 back to back seals at the impeller side of the pump, and the cone forms the seal at the other side. This means the bearings are in a sealed area, and the water proof grease (rather than ordinary grease) is really just a precaution in case of water ingress. The idea of a mix of oil and grease would allow the mixture to get into the bearings more easily, especially in cold water areas. Remember to only fill the cavity between the bearings inside the pump to approx 1/3rd capacity, as per the manual. Cheers, Dave.
