    I'm learning a lot. Some of the shortcuts (like i suggested earlier) sometimes work for a quick, albeit often temproary, fix... there is nothing like a job done right! Thanks, especially for the education in lubricants and compatibilities.

    I just ordered a jar of Redline CV-2. I forgot about this grease. We used it extensively to lube dynamometer bearings and imput shafts, where we had trouble with lube washout with ever leaking seals. These diesel engine dynos cost $30K per rebuild and we used them under continuous duty, but they were designed for intermittent short term usage. We had to remoive this large heavy objects, once every 2 days to keep them working. PITA, especially for a single worker.

    Stuff is nasty and sticks to everything... but great lube.
