    Oiling ACS Claws free wheels

    Does anyone have a tip on keeping ACS Claws freewheels spinning smoothly. It seems that about 3 months into a new freewheel it begins to creek. What type of grease or oil would anyone recommend.

    I guess a white industries free wheel should not have these problems since it has seal bearings and its also 6x more expensive..
    thanks in advance...........................................

    ummmmm...

    the only way i've found to keep an acs from clunking/grinding/etc is to replace it with an eno. go for it, you won't regret it.

    I got this advice, tried it and it's seemed to have worked well. Get some Mobile 1 synthetic gear oil (stress gear) at any automotive store. 90 wt I think. Soak your freewheel for as long as you want. I've got a couple and have em just sitting in a coffee can of the stuff. Soak em, spin em, soak em, spin em. I had a real rough FW and it smoothed it out completely. The stuff's like $5-10. Worth it. Cheaper than an ENO. S

    ENO Freewheel

    With an ENO freewheel, you never ever have to worry, and they are rebuildable, so the investing in one is a very good thing.
