Hi all - hope everyone is staying safe - I have taken to isolating myself in the workshop - great progress is being made!

Quick question - What is everyone using to lubricate gears? I'm assuming grease, but what type - seems to be hundreds to choose from!

Hi

Do NOT use grease. It will attract dust and create a grinding paste. Just lub with oil often.

Seconded, no grease just bearing oil or universal steam oil if you dont want to carry two lots about.

The only parts that I've greased are the wheel hubs and the differential, everything else is a 'total loss' oil system which effectively is self cleaning (if messy)
