I have used disk brake wheel bearing grease in the cup bearing at the  back 
of the alternator with good results.

Cool!  Thanks everyone. I got the top on the motor.
I just  took the alternator apart and sure enough, the bearing on the 
backend  seems to feel a little rough.  So... I am rebuilding t he

Should I add a little more and if so, is there a a specific type a  
grease I should or shouldn't use?
-Thanks -
