Special Lubrication Instructions for Amphibious Wheels
Grove amphibious wheels are shipped with the wheel bearings packed with Mobil SHC 100 grease and do not need to be re-packed prior to use.
Prior to installation of the wheels on the aircraft, coat the inside of each wheel-half with a light coating of grease to inhibit corrosion.
At each annual inspection remove the wheel bearings. Inspect for corrosion and replace if necessary. Re-pack the bearings with Mobil SHC 100 grease. Check the wheel-halves for corrosion, clean and re-coat with a light coating of grease to inhibit corrosion. Re-assemble the wheel using new grease seals.
Follow the float manufactures instructions for continued maintenance following water operations.
