Super free One-way.

Postby Sir Slide Alot » Mon Mar 07, 2011 8:32 am

some may know a yokomo one-way for example isn't as free as one would like it to be.

Take some brake parts cleaner( none-chlorine type), spray inside really well, let it dry nicely.

Then you use something like this: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_inf ... earing-Oil

super free running now.

Oh I gotta try that oil. I get scared messing with the one way bearings. I don't want to ruin mine.

I used diff oil in mine, worked great, but would assume the one-way oil might work better hahaha

I think you only will pay more for the word "drift'' on the label :P

otherwise, every bearing oil will be good i think ;)

I have trinity bearing oil that i use for normal bearings, but it didn't really work for the one-way.... was a while ago, so forget exactly why, but it didnt work out well for me (hahaha) Think maybe it was a bit thin, but i forget hey =)

thinnest machine oil is good but I don't use my Trinity Royal (purple) oil

best is silicone spray oil as it's thinnest & doesn't gum up the oneway's rollers

Silicone spray works excellent on tiny bearings.

Oneway oil goes in one way, if you do it backwards. the oneway will go the other way.

After the same cleaning process I use Hoppes no.9 gun oil.
It's a non-petroleum based lubricant, is fairly thin, and has a huge working temperature range... Plus it's in my shop.

Just another alternative. I'm pretty sure Rem-Oil would work also.

Cheers,
Brian
