Im putting my Eaton supercharger back together and was wondering what is the blue packing grease in the housing barrings? Is it just high temp stuff or is the blue color signifigant of something else? Just wondering if the color meant something particular!

The grease that comes in those particular bearings is indeed a high-speed grease because they're high-speed bearings. Got that info in my search for a better grease, but I later found...

Dow Corning makes a true silicone grease meant for extremely high speeds, it's called #44. Nobody in the industry has been able to come close to it, you want the ultimate grease then #44 is it.

Feel free to consult your local oil supplier/jobber for an equivalent to this stuff, they'll tell you that Dow has the market cornered with this stuff.

take care & good luck with your blower,
