This is as good as an anchor
My boat's PO bought the manufacturers grease. Thank goodness.
Now about the windlass
that chewed up one of it's own bearings
and spit the little pieces all over.
The don't sell just the one or two bearings I wanted. No, course not. The whole kit. And since it was not new-to-me they didn't care one whit that two of the case screws were stripped because the case half's do not actually line up properly with the holes.
Back to the grease.
I used (and use) Evinrude-Johnson "Triple-guard grease. ("Totally waterproof, won't wash out). Part # 508298
This stuff has been on stuff repeatedly dunked in salt water
and left to dry un-rinsed. It does not get hard. Best stuff I have found.
You can anchor
your boat on that my friends!
Oh, and on high volume things like trailer bearings I use that cheap
, ugly, greenish stuff pictured above. Yea, it will get hard if left out in the air for 4-6 years or so. So, the point?
I was too cheap to buy galvanized trailer wheels so I bought the $6.00 ones from walmart. You know the white metal ones that rust in 3 months. Heh. Smear that cheap grease on all the white and it looks awful (no one will steal them) but no rust in 6 years. Dry rot
rubber, now that is something else.
What is this thread about?
