Correct grease type?

Recommended Posts

Qu. - what type of grease should I put in the (sealed) chain case of a tiller unit off an old Type W walking tractor? I guess any old grease would do - even the old grease that's been in there for the last 45 years - but new grease may as well be the correct format. Any offers appreciated.

I work for an excavating contractor and we use somewhere near 2500 tubes of grease a year and have tried all kinds. I am no expert on the technicalities of grease but can tell you I like the good red sticky stuff the best. You will pay a couple bucks more a tube, but it holds on real good. IMHO Ken

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
