    Lithium Grease is suitable for high speed it is actually an outboard marine grease and doesn't contain clay.

    Cheers Ianh.

    Lithium grease is ok with the higher rpm that brushless sometimes run is it?

    Thank you Martin and Colin for your replies.
    No, I'm definitely not looking to build pond rockets. Scale and some more is all I'm aiming to achieve.

    That's good to know Colin.

    My Sea Rover is having a new shaft because after I removed the two outer ones, I found the centre one was bent and didn't have a shaft, only a stern tube.
    So, that one has been removed as well now. A new, single centre prop will be fitted.

    Thank you.
    Will

    Hi Will, none of my vintage boats have oilers and still perform as they should, I usually use marine grease on my shafts, this works well for up to 5 or 6 weeks at a time.
    And as most of my fleet are over 40 years old I have not felt the need to retrofit oilers.
    So as long as your shafts are good and the drive train correctly lined up this should suit your needs.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Will,

    If you type in 'prop shaft oiler' on ebay.
    Here is an example you will find them to suit the different size tubes.

    I don't think you will have to replace the prop shafts that you Allred have fitted un less you plan on converting the boats into pond rockets.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Hi folks,

    A few years ago, I bought a handful of new old stock prop shafts. What I need to know, is because I am converting all of my boats to brushless, either from ic or brushed, will the propshafts in the boats already, or the new ones still in the packets, be suitable for brushless power?

    None of my boats are race boats and I'm not looking for ultimate speed.
    My boats are motor cruisers between 29 and 46 inch, plus a 49 inch MTB as well.
    The motors that I am looking at using will be outrunners, between 750 and 1000(ish) kv, so not really high rpms.

    I have seen posts where people have fitted tubes onto the side (facing up) of the stern tube for lubrication, is this something that I need to be doing?
    Or is there other lubrication of the propshaft I should do instead that would be enough?

    I won't be running the boats at high/max speed for long periods, mainly scale, occasionally a bit more

    Thanks in advance for any advice.
    Will
