Grease - ???


Recommended Posts

Hi

Was greasing prop shafts on The Beastie and ran out of grease. Daughter volunteered to get when passing Halford and has come back with a tub of Comma CV Lith-Moly Grease.

Will this do for standard use greasing up UJs etc?

I know it is probably a silly question but I seem to recall that different greases have different properties and not sure if this would be suited to whatever wear a UJ gets.

If it isn't any use for UJs etc, is it good for any other LR maintenance or should I just go and change it.

Thanks for your patience and tolerance!

Best wishes

It will do fine!

Generally, to judge the quality of a grease for mechanical purposes place a small amount of grease on a flat steel surface and strike it with a hammer. Inspect the face of the hammer, if there still is a small amount of grease on the striking surface of both the hammer and flat surface, then the grease will also have the right properties for sticking to gears and bearings in the mechanical assembly.
