    (shoot just checked, this thread started in 2012, lol)

    I have always had good luck using Mobil Red grease #28. I usually only use the grease the manual of the machine recommends as thats what they used at the factory when they built it. Most greases should not be mixed or the soaps can have a chemical reaction and get hard. So if you have been using one, best to stay with what your using or clean out the old before switching.

      Double drats, I hadn't noticed that it was a zombie thread myself, Grain DSG obviously trawled up an old thread instead of starting a new one. Sorry, Richard P Wilson.
      The Smart & Brown model A at the museum has had the grease treatment in various places which are being slowly corrected.
