    Default proper maintenance and lubrication for jet inboard

    I have a American Turbine Jet in my Jetcraft. Other than the thrust bearing zerk fitting that is easily visible, what other preventive maintenance should I be doing for the jet drive? Should I be using standard grease or is a marine grade wheel bearing grease better?
    Any guidance is appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Not sure if your's is the same as the AT 203 but there is a zerk on the stator housing as well. Look through the end of the jet. I've had great service out of Amsoil Water resistant grease and swear by it.

    I'll be sure to check it out. Where can I get the Amsoil grease in the valley?

    As you are leaving Palmer headed north, he's on the left as you climb the hill out of town before you get to Farm Loop road. Sign at the end of his driveway advertises U-Haul rental.

    The manual says "Valvoline synthetic #985, Shell Albania #2, or the equivalent. NOTE: DO NOT USE WHEEL BEARING GREASE."

    Thrust bearing calls for grease every 30 hours, bowl bearing as start and end of season.
