Max Prop Grease

I have always ordered Lubriplate grease from PYI because I have been unablle to find the product on the east coast. Does someone have a recommended substitute that can be found to a normal auto or marine type store. I would like to see others' choices.
Thx

I am using the waterproof grease made by Superior Industries for my Hydralign. I was afraid to go with the trailer hub grease you can buy in any marine or auto store for $7.

I don't like to answer a question with a question but this one begs the exception - given the cost of the prop, isn't it a huge false economy to find a cheaper alternative to that which the manufacturer recommends?
Although not necessarily true of all store, my local WM stores both in RI and Fl have Lubriplate on their shelf.

I was not begging a cheap alternative. I was simply looking for an available alternate product. The Walmart in Melbourne does not carry Lubriplate grease. I have seen Lubriplate lower unit lube but not the grease. I have been unable in years past to locate the lube in any marine supply store in the Annapolis or Melbourne FL area as well.

search online.

I think I ordered several tubes from a distributor or maybe the manufacturer in Toledo, Ohio.

Ran into a garage door service shop that carried it too.

One can get it right fro PYI. http://www.pyiinc.com/index.php?sect...ept_id=79&sn=2

It is a special grade of lubriplate (130AA) different then the auto parts stuff.

Or one can get it right from the manufacture; Lubriplate Online Store - Detail

There is a slight difference in grades! I would prefer the best for it's use. See link; http://www.lubriplate.com/pdf/pds/3_...0%20Series.pdf
