    Hi, just replacing the swing / slew bearing on an older Hitachi EX200LC-5……. would anyone know how much grease to add to the center for the pinion and gear teeth.
    I have looked in our service manual but haven’t been able to find a quantity there.
    Would 1” up the gear teeth of red tacky grease be adequate?

    Thank you
