Default One-way diff maintenance

Hi guys...

i'm just in the middle of cleaning the bearings on my car. Nightmare!

I'm up to the one-way now. Can the one way be cleaned like normal ball-bearings? motor-spray, apply bearing oil? or does the one-way use grease?

thanks

No oil, the one-way bearings use grease. The maker of your one-way more then likely has a recommended grease for it specifically.

Later,

be careful with any of the cleaning-sprays. They could damage the onewaybearing. The Serpent oneway lube is the best lube for oneways. But itīs so thin itīs a oil. Lot of people use this one. Never had a broken onewaybearing using this lube.
