    I agree with Tom here... I never could figure out why people put grease in a Berkeley bowl, unless it has been converted. Oil lubes better and curculates thru the bearings keeping them cooler( thats what the two little holes are for behind the bowl sea)l. Not only that but bowls designed for grease have an inside E clip to keep the seal from blowing out when you pump in the grease. I know I am going to get flak for my O2 but Berk and Legend bowls are designed for oil....use it if you can... Jim

    does the oil or grease lube a bearing or a brass bushing?

    No "bearing" in there just a bushing. And here's why I do NOT use grease > the bowl will never get hot enough to liquefy the grease...once that shaft starts spinning the grease won't be where it's needed, and that's (IF) it ever got between the bushing and shaft in the first place (doubtful) > oil flows between the shaft and bushing
    And no need for high $$$$ synthetic gear oils there, heck the cheapest gear oil or even thick straight 50wt oil will do.
