Now I need to know what grease to by that meets this definition.
Channeling: If a grease stays in place after it has been displaced by the balls during initial rotation, it is referred to as a channeling grease. This property is useful to reduce torque. A non-channeling grease will tend to migrate back into the raceways, which can promote better lubrication in heavy load applications

The following may be of help to you.

http://www.nyelubricants.com/news/2001_007.htm

"For manufacturers searching for a replacement for ExxonMobil's recently discontinued Andokô C grease, Rheolube 374C by Nye Lubricants, Inc., is an excellent candidate, according to a technical paper presented at a symposium in Orlando, April 22 to 24, sponsored by ASTM Committee F34 on Rolling Element Bearings.

"The paper contains test results that compare Rheolube 374C to Andok C. Tests results show that Rheolube 374C offers superior water washout performance, lower noise and vibration levels, broader temperature capabilities, lower evaporation rates, and better wear protection ó all of which contribute to improved bearing performance and longer bearing life. Rheolube 374C is an NLGI Grade 4 polyalphaolefin-lithium-complex grease."
