So, to be clear... I did remove the red grease (brake cleaner, blow out w/low pressure - not rotating bearings, wash w/soft brush in warm soapy water, rinse in warm water, blow out again w/low pressure, dry in sun for about an hour) then repacked with the black grease.

Is everything okay? If not, what do you suggest now? I presume that my fairly thorough cleaning prevented "mixing" of the two greases... right?
