Can you provide a reference for the bearings so we can add that to the bestlinks so the next person starts where you left off?
An interesting discussion on bearing grease:

I didn't drill down and identify the actual bearing by part number, I just spoke to a friend of mine in industrial sales who advised me that one of these two mfgs would definitely have it, or an equivalent:

I searched all the markings on the bearing itself and the only thing I found was from the "bobistheoilguy" link, where someone apparently wanted to do exactly what I was considering after prolonged contact with industrial solvents
