Ive got new A/C bearings for the large bullgear in my J head - I will be keeping the oil cup system of lubrication.

The bearings are open - but do I grease them for the first time and then let the oil gradually take over or just give them a good oiling from the start?

Have not heard of that method before. Maybe they use grease in the bearings during shipping to prevent damage. :confused:

Use one or the other. I remember reading about a oil cup guy just packing everything with grease. I would do oil.
