I just checked out your link and saw the rubber-ish seals.
You were fortunate not to damage the bearings with that two legged puller. It is pulling on the outside rim of the bearing assembly , and not the inside where all of the tension is on a press fit bearing. If your seals were metal , they would have been crushed and stopped the bearings from turning. Ask me how I know…. LOL : )
I also use that red grease on a lot of projects , including my jointers’ dovetailed ways and the threads on the table height adjusters. Good stuff : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
