Default Yamaha engine grease points which grease to use?

It's time to grease the fittings on my 150. I looked in the manual all it says is to use "Yamlube marine grease".
I can't find what Yamlube marine grease is made up of. Does not mention anything on the label or in manual.

Walmart used to sell Quicksilver 2-4-C. I think I remember seeing it had teflon in in. Went to walmart and they were out of 2-4-C. Went to Home Dept and Lowes and they only had WD-40 brand that was also rated for marine. But again did not specify what is in it.

What do you guys recommend to do? Just buy the Yamalube grease or find the 2-4-C? Or maybe even any marine grease will do, like what Lowes and Home Dept carry?

BRP Triple Guard is one of the best all around greases for your motor and anything connected to it. Their marine wheel bearing grease is also top notch and can be used for the grease fittings too.

I think as long as you put grease in once or twice a year you should be fine. I use whatever is in the grease gun

I like the BRP Triple guard, but it has a tendency to harden up over time.

The "Yamaha Marine Grease" is the grease specified on teh service manuals as "A" and "D" (I verified that with Yamaha CS).

The "A" grease is what is specified for use in similar pics to yours above, at least for my F250.

IDK if it's the best or not, but Lucas is what's in my grease gun. No problems so far.

Some greases are incompatible with others (particularly lithium and sodium) so you should pick a grease and stick with it. I have been using the 2-4-C for decades and I have been happy with it.

Can you put the 2-4-c in the wheel bearings of a trailer?

According to their literature, it can be used for wheel bearings.

I use cheap Walmart super tech marine wheel bearing grease for everything. And I mean everything. Reels, bicycle bearings, wheel bearings, ball joints, outboard grease points, jack grease points, winches, trailer fasteners including the lug nuts, hurricane shutter hardware, you name it. Works great.

brand new boat/motor,huh?

I would go to wal mart and buy a new grease gun, then go to the yamaha dealer and buy a tube of the yamaha grease. label the new grease gun and use it solely for greasing the fittings in question.

You just bought a new boat, spend the $20 on a grease gun and the grease.

Just my thinking.
