corn head grease is not a 'local term'

it's a jd product.

Never had a need to go into a Deer dealer, they don't sell many Ford parts there.

Like I said, chassis grease is good for me.

but chassis grease is not appropriate for your steering box.

in 62 or so.. ford put out a service bulleting specifying a NLGI 0# grease. cornhead grease is a poly urea based 0# ep grease. quite ideal. You can also get ep 00 # greases from many sources.. like snapper dealers and stens lube dealers.

average every day chassis tube grease is nlgi 2# and will cavitate and make a hole around the parts needing the lube.. leaving only residual film ont he parts needing the lube.

better than dry and toasty.. but not as good as oil or light grease lubed.

as for the jd dealer. you'd be surprised. in days past you could walk in and get parts for MS carbs.. your pre 65 ford came with a ms carb. :)

Ah hah, now I know the type you are referring to.

I use it in my Sthil hedge clippers.

What you are saying now makes perfect sense.

I'll pick up a couple of tubes and purge out what's in there now.

if you add in that 0 or 00 lube.. which is what many lawn products dealer sell, that will be fine.

it will soften the #2 grease up and make a slurry.

just keep topping the 00/2 off with 00 and you should be good.

will matter not if ther eis still a slug of #2 against the wall taking up space. that might actually HELP seal the leacky sector seals and keep the 00 grease right around the ballnut where it should be.

just top her off now and then and she should be good.
