Default Grease question

I know the topic of greases has been brought up before but I had a quick question. I have been using a lithium based white grease in the mains of my flywheel engines, and I have decided that this grease is not suitable for this application. My question is this: If I continue to use a lithium based grease will I have to get all traces of the old grease out of the bearings? I am planning on trying the same wheel bearing grease that I use on my truck and trailer, a really heavy, sticky, thick grease, as opposed to the fairly thin white grease I have been using. Both are lithium based. I know that if I were to change the base I would have to.

I wouldn't be too concerned about getting ALL the Lithium out .as it won't hurt anything at all, I also use the Wheel bearing Grease, And does a great Job!... Larry

I got some of that somewhat thick and sticky Kendall Blue Litheium Grease, i use stuff like that all the time, doesn't seem to hurt nuttn. if anything, it helps one would think, becouse it sticks in one place and doesnt run all over everywere, it just stays on bearings and thats it.
